I'm a bit like that too. I just can't come at EQ as EQ, though I have no qualms about ordinary tone controls. At the moment I use -2db on a Marantz SR4023 stereo receiver to tame the treble; tonight, after reading devhen's post, I might try +2 on the bass as well. But EQ? Nah, I'll pass.
Agree'd I don't mind a hard ware eq, turn a knob adjust some resistance and BAM color, but using software to eq has never struck my fancy, and I do eq the mids a touch on the Dt 990 for edm and yea it is WOW, it's why the 990s are like my end game DnB can xD [I allow mah self to eq them]
The Dt 990 is like that sexy friend of yours who has WAY to many tatoo's [and I really don't like tatoo's] but she's just to damn awesome with those tats, so you know screw it, we shall make an exception!
Speaking of which, and shame one my for being so dense,Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
very pretty girl walks into wal mart each night [and I work third shifts there] and she is [go figure] hair dye'd, tatoo's a plenty but NO make up [wait what], oh and ofc she's very attractive (whoa I spelled that right yea) Anyways, she walks into Wal Mart about once a week, and [I work in Produce] I swear she spend like 30 minuete's looking at some list... and then starring at salad and OF COURSE, she is smiling at me like EVERY 5 mins. Stupid me ONLY does the usual "Miss can I help you find anything" bs I do with EVERY woman... that and I'm cleaning so you know address the customer and get to work. It dawns on my yesterday that maybe she's trying to get me to TAKE some damn action... no one needs to spend 30 minuete's looking at the same bag of salad. Only to leave the area and then come back 10 minuete's later and linger around. As always, that occurs on me when she's checking out 45 feet away from me *face palm*
That sound... dang it guys I found mah DT 990 gal In real life :D, I totally have to find some non audiophilishly geeky way to say something... and ivory skinned girl with a Spiderman tatoo on her calf has to be pretty chill!
Funny story... that we/I talk about women, tatoo's and eq'ing the Dt 990 in the same 24 hour period... it MUST BE A GIFT sent forth from the GOD's of AUDIO...
