Filter Settings file

Room EQ V5,01
Dated: 29.02.2012 20:04:50


Equaliser: Generic

Filter  1: ON  PK       Fc    33,3 Hz  Gain   7,0dB   Q  1,0
Filter  2: ON  PK       Fc      75,6 Hz  Gain   -1,3 dB  Q 1,0
Filter  2: ON  PK       Fc    112,5 Hz  Gain   -1,1 dB  Q  2,02 
Filter  3: ON  PK       Fc    152,0 Hz  Gain   -1,2 dB  Q  1,93
Filter  4: ON  PK       Fc    220,0 Hz  Gain   -2,9 dB  Q  0,72

Filter  5: ON PK        Fc    3300,0 Hz  Gain   -3,0dB   Q 1,0

Filter  6: ON  LS       Fc    17700,0 Hz  Gain   -7,0 dB
 

 

 

Save the text above in a text file called sennhd600.txt. Then, find the config.txt in the config folder of EQApo and edit it to include the sennhd600.txt file.

Just a word of advice, it's better to avoid boosting at any frequencies, to avoid clipping. Better to cut the rest of the spectrum. My ear buds have the following EQ curve, for example:

There is no clipping in those filter settings. Filter 6 is a Low Shelf.

Sorry, I replied to the wrong post.

Hi everyone,

 

 

I've followed this EQ thing (mostly), and I just think this is the most important post in head-fi, probably.  I've done quite a bit on my modded TH900s using Equalizer APO (w/ Peace GUI). Also did a little work on my HD800 (with Draug 2 cable). Let me see if I can get some graphs/settings to post here.

Even if you do say so yourself!

 

... oh you mean the most important thread;)

No, my post WAS the most important post of all time... until this one. :P

 

Seriously though, I am equalizing my HD800, this is amazing.

HD800 responds to EQ like no other.  The sound stage will widen amazingly with greater detail - you'll love it  . . .

Has someone tried this with the DT 770 Pro 250 ohm yet? =3

I beg to differ. The cheapest headphones will often have the most to gain. I EQ'd some very cheap ($20) headphones and they improved beyond recognition.

^ Yea, that would make sense.

RE: How to equalize your headphones

 Hello,

We can see lot of headphones curves offered by different sources. What is the reliability level of such curves?

I would like to offer some criteria to judge is some Amplitude Frequency Response curve reliable or not:

 – can we create an equalizer based on such curve and is such equalizer removing problems (sound coloring) and does not add new ones?

The accurate and reliable measurement shows that it is impossible to characterize some headphones model by only one curve. The curve is different from one pair to another and even between two drivers of one pair of headphones.

Please visit this measurement collection  http://aplaudio.com/conc2/knowledge/equalizing-headphones

and try to determine which 6 pairs of curves are representing 6 pairs of Sennheiser HD600 headphones. Same thing with Sennheiser HD650 4 pairs.

Trying this with shure 1840's. Hopefully I can figure it out.
post #1079 of 1079

Those measurements were collected by serving orders. Unfortunately, no one of them was shure 1840.
But let`s try to fix such lack.
