That's not going to happen without some sort of measurement microphone. And that's more than most people are willing to spend. Perhaps some headphone retailers could make some revenue by offering this service at $50 a pop - calculating the optimum PEQ settings for your own headphones on your own ear. People spend a lot more on things like cables which offer no significant improvement compared to good PEQ.

that would be great idea if hp manufacturers would offer such a service, but for me since i am on the go, and mainly rely on portable rigs and my transport is an ios, i did not yet find an parametric equalier that allows u to play flac

I'd gladly pay $100-200 for reliable softare that could EQ my IEMs for me without darkening the sound, altering timbres, etc. The chance to hear my music the way it was meant to be experienced for the first time would easily be worth the cost of a new set of headphones. Arguably more, since evidently even the best IEMs on the market would still sound sketchy without equalization. :/

yeah me too, although what is starting to get really irritating is that somehow some few people think if your not tech enough you don't deserve to be here, well regular people who are not tech familiar with frequencies and analysis also seek high end audio too, and we entered this world of audiophile to get the best we can, but then for example i am in the medical field what would i know about all this tech talk here, so sometimes i just find myself reading things here that simpy make no sense to me or understanding

 

so i really would like this community to all think of regular users who have no background in sound physics or whatever it is that people sometimes write volumes of

 

and i am not ashamed to admit i dont understand most the tech stuff written here, but that does not mean I dont distinguish great quality sound from trash quality. So i would really like to see a software or a program that allows u to get the best sound with just a click of a buttom

I can't say I've seen as much of that as you might have.  There are definitely some tech geniuses around here but I doubt it would be a quality audiophile forum without them.  Threads like this one are chock full of digestible information that people like us can use to self-educate and generally people are responsive to questions if you're willing to own your ignorance.  I've met some wonderful people on Head-Fi—but I've also had numerous questions go entirely unanswered, which might have been because folks felt it was beneath them to answer me.  I choose not to get bent out of shape over it because my involvement at Head-Fi has taken me from a 5th gen iPod with Klipsch Image S4s to an iBasso DX90 with NuForce Primo 8s, HiFiMan RE-400s, and Sleek Audio SA7s.  If I never manage to perfectly EQ any of them they'll still sound better than 95% of what the rest of the world is listening to.

 

All of that said, I do empathize with your frustration.  I hate math and all this talk of logarithms is intellectually emasculating.  I'm a social work student with an undergraduate degree in psychology.  If we're talking human behavior or social justice issues I'm pretty solid; but I feel like an idiot the second someone starts spouting formulae like f/B + Q(sin)^3.1415*[(a)(b^c)] = volume.

 

Nope.  Just nope, nope, nope! But that doesn't make me an idiot at all.

Here's something.

 

Or you could get Dirac Live and maybe hook it up to something like this.

i was wondering does dirac work with headphones, also how about the car as I have a system that I am struggling to equalize

 

Now i am thinking of using a small 7 inch tablet window 8.1 as a transport and it instead of the ipod and connect it to my ifi dsd and audio lcd2, do u think using a window 8.1 tablet will give me better sound using this software headphone math or dirac than using an ipod as a transport
