Bauer stereophonic-to-binaural DSP - Page 3

post #31 of 39
I've been using v3.0.0 and really love it. I just noticed that 3.1.0 is out now.

Dolby Headphone is the only one that really brings the sound outside of your head. But I don't like the way it sounds that much.

VST too, very nice!

 

but it sounds mono and highly colored compared to VNoPhones.

I've been trying this DSP in foobar and it just sounds so congested compared to not using it. Without it my M50's sound spacious and airy, with it everything sounds dead flat on the ground.

Seems you've already grown too accustomed to the unnatural stereo separation / "soundstage" / sound coming from inside of your head feeling that is inherent with headphones. Nobody forces you to change that or to use the plugin.

Or you simply didn't configure it properly.

Necro bump!

 

Trying it again with HE500 (with modded pads) today, wow. HE500s already have very exceptional imaging capabilities, and this DSP pushes the soundstage out and away on top of that. I'm digging it! Sounds 95% like speakers on my head basically.

 

Will post more detailed impressions later.

Audacious on Linux seems to have this plug built in from the start, I tried it and I liked it, I preferred the J.Meier-setting. So, I had to test it on Foobar2000 as well, I downloaded the latest version available and it works very well. I don't think there is much coloration with high quality source material - other similar plugins tested have had more coloration - but rather the sound gets more relaxed to listen to, which is the intended effect. I can't decide yet if I will continue to use it, but it sounds promising. I use HD600 for the record :-)

I recently heard a great speaker system and I realized how disconnected from a real stereo system I was.

I came back to use the BS2B dsp and thought the C.Moy settings were very close to what I heard on this speaker system, I'm definitely going to use it now.

Just saw this mentioned and I had to try it out. It's different but quite nice. It makes the sound-stage more cohesive and removes the separation with no loss of quality, at the cost of being more distant and a little lost of volume. Taking it off, you can really hear the separated sound of headphones, a gap, especially in the vocals. I have to get used to this more relaxed sound, but since I can never have the speakers too loud in my apartment anyway, it'll be like listening to them.

 

I also like the C. Moy setting. The Default feels a little too closed in. The J. Meier almost a little too separate and is the most like normal headphones. The C. Moy is in the middle and feels the most comfortable and accepting.
