Not wow-OWWW as in OUCH! Too much treble. These velour pads: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brainwavz-Replacement-Memory-Foam-Earpads/dp/B00MFDX4YO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464649700&sr=8-1&keywords=brainwavz+velour+pads
There IS no logic-especially with me because I have 40+ headphones, including several with that high end tuning already...........it was just fun playing around with it. I know, i know, it's probably the pinnacle of stupidity.....
Proof of this is at all headphone events and meets, Ether C is a demo headphone of probably 80% of the amp manufacturers' tables.........and the reason it's not 100% is some of the amp companies make their own headphones!
Yes I guess, but once the headphone is bought everyone has a right to tune the sound to their preference and I'll tell you one thing, I've never heard a more EQ friendly headphone.
This particular tuning I'm not that fond of, I must admit, but it sure was fun fiddling around with different settings. And once I reverted back to no EQ, things were sooooooooooooo smooth!
Tried Dale Thorn's settings with Jriver 1st and man, just can't boost 1k 12db like that!!!:
That was the reason I got rid of the HD800 though. Soundstage expansion? Hmmm, yeah but I don't have my HD800 anymore to compare. Pretty big though. I think this tuning was made for people with low to moderate listening levels.......
On another note I tried a similar tuning with iTunes EQ and switched to Brainwaves velour pads, which also...
That is a truly beautiful sight. I have an artist in Chicago that wanted to rock a pair in his music video, I told him the price and he asked if he could get a pair without the drivers and innards, lol.
