← 679edo | 680edo | 681edo → |

^{3}× 5 × 17**680 equal divisions of the octave** (abbreviated **680edo** or **680ed2**), also called **680-tone equal temperament** (**680tet**) or **680 equal temperament** (**680et**) when viewed under a regular temperament perspective, is the tuning system that divides the octave into 680 equal parts of about 1.76 ¢ each. Each step represents a frequency ratio of 2^{1/680}, or the 680th root of 2.

### Odd harmonics

680edo retains a reasonable 3rd and 5th harmonic, though nowhere near the accuracy of the prior multiple 612edo; as a multiple of 34edo, 680edo borrows that edo's accurate representation of the interval 25/24, implying that the error on prime 3 is approximately twice that on prime 5. However, 680edo is most notable for its approximation of the 7th harmonic, 680 being the denominator of a semiconvergent to log_{2}(7/4). It also has a very accurate 23rd harmonic.
