I actually found my SE530 to scale very well with the addition of a pico. the previously slightly rolled off highs are now no longer. Also added to the already pretty good soundstage for an IEM

i guess treble booster might be the perfectly balanced eq for these phones.
That's because your ears adjust to the sound. If you use bass boost for a while and suddenly switch to treble boost it will sound very harsh. i used a song to determine which eq setting is good. cymbal crashes were very soft, so up treble. Made things sound tinny so brought in a little bass. made voices sound fuller. finally, used itunes eq setting Latin. you guys should try that.
