 That's what I have been beginning to discover in experimenting between Rockbox's EQ (Q-measured) and Electri-Q (BW-measured).  I will apply your Q recommendation of 1.4 and see how that turns out. Thanks! And for those who aren't aware, this site is useful for on-the-fly Q to BW factor conversions.
I was a missionary in Brazil from 2010 to 2012, so that would make me a bit younger. hehe During my time there, Luan Santana and Paula Fernandes (sertanejo) were in the spotlight of the Brazilian populace. I am still keeping my eye on the Brazilian music scene and right now Annita (funk) has taken the country by storm. I do know of some music from Brazil's other key genres like MPB, samba and (sadly) arrocha.
Have you found a better EQ since you posted this? For as small of a change that it is, this seems to make a big improvement to the overall tone and presentation. Thanks! EDIT: After some fiddling with the settings on my Sansa Zip Clip, I admit that I like the treble slightly boosted by 2 or 3 dB. I need a slight party-like sound, but not to Grado's treble-boosted extremes. In many ways, I am now tending to believe that I will prefer this EQ'd Tascam over my SRH940 I will...
Mighty eclectic, I am!  I do listen to a bit of everything, and that is only a small portion of some of those things. I happen to listen to Legião Urbana because I lived and worked in Brazil as a missionary a while ago and was recommended their music by a native Brazilian. I love the several albums I have and probably will complete that collection as the years go on. How did you come to like Legião Urbana? Are you native Brazilian, a Brazilian aficionado, or, by chance,...
Some quick comparison tracks between my Superlux and the Tascam: First, in the special compendium album Burt Bacharach - "Something Big." In "Reach Out for Me," the first female vocal entry has actually plenty of air and is very neutral and natural and there is decent soundstaging and placement of those vocals in the left channel. In "I Say a Little Prayer," the very, very, barely noticeable vocals in the left channel behind the calliope are actually noticeable and still...
My impressions after a couple hours of burn-in and more listening: It doesn't have a lot of obvious shimmer like most headphones, but the details are certainly there and actually a bit more of it after listening more closely. Now, it is much easier for me to pick up on subtle trickles and tings in the background and the hiss in recordings, though the headphone's frequency response doesn't seem to be the main reason. I would wager that this immediate access to more...
I actually am on a crusade of trying to learn to competently use Tyll's graphs. The graphs certainly look awesome enough, but I am a bit skeptical of how they work. With normal purchases above $50, it is my personal rule to always try before buying. In a cheap way, this headphone was a quick reminder to me of why I made that rule.
Removed original response. It's kind of funny, but the mids and bass are starting to grow on me. In a noisier environment where the upper definition and clarity don't matter, these sound great! I may seem like a flip-flop in this way, but they really do sound quite good. I will not do eq-ing because I do not like its effects compared to a good, level response. Maybe I will buy some Dynamat or other material to cut down on the resonance. I just don't want to ruin the...
I just got the Tascam TH-02 headphone and unboxed and started demoing it.   Sadly, my impressions are quite negative. It has a lot more actual perceived resonance than I had led myself to believe, even more than a ATH-m50, perhaps a less pleasing resonance or something. When it comes down to it, it is also too dark in the upper mids and lower to middle treble for my listening habits. On the bright side, the bass to middle midrange is quite linear and driver response is...
Another week, another deal rolling in for the Tascam TH-02. If you don't mind white, you can find it for a good deal on eBay. It is now available for $20.75 from musicsupplydirect, an authorized reseller. It may fluctuate later after the time of this post. I was able to get it for $19.09.   http://www.ebay.com/itm/181114999387
