the simple eq has 10 bands, and the sam frequencies as your poweramp, but the graphical eq has peaks etc that i dont know how to read :P

 

on the first page with the poweramp eq, is that lower dotted line -12 or -10db? and the bass and treble knobs, what do they mean? (not moved or -x db?)

I posted different electri q settings in the thread, which one are you using? I can convert it to rockbox format for you

im using the one you posted at the end of your first post:

 

Here's the EQ settings I made for Electri-Q for download (you'd need to tweak it to fit your own ear canal resonances even if you have the same phones):

if you could do that, that would be wonderful!!

Transcribing the Electri-Q settings:

Low shelf filter, cutoff at 276Hz, -8.2dB, BW=2

Peak filters:

1. center at 650Hz, +1.5dB, BW=2

2. center at 1398Hz, +0.6dB, BW=1

3. center at 2532Hz, -2.7dB, BW=1

4. center at 2950Hz, -5.6dB, BW=0.5

5. center at 5300Hz, -10.1dB, BW=0.4

6. center at 8000Hz, -13dB, BW=0.3

7. center at 10090Hz, -3.3dB, BW=0.4

8. center at 11700Hz, -3.3dB, BW=0.2

 

(nonstandard filter) Butterworth highshelf, cutoff at 11700Hz, -5.2dB, BW=1

 

To convert into a format usable by rockbox, round frequencies to nearest 10Hz and convert bandwidth into Q factor using this online calculator:

http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-bandwidth.htm

 

Rockbox settings:

Low shelf, cutoff at 280Hz, -8.2dB, Q=0.67

Peak filters:

650Hz +1.5dB Q=0.67

1400Hz +0.6dB Q=1.41

2530Hz -2.7dB Q=1.41

2950Hz -5.6dB Q=2.87

5300Hz -10.1dB Q=3.6

8000Hz -13dB Q=4.8

10090Hz -3.3dB Q=3.6

11700Hz -3.3dB Q=7.2

High shelf, cutoff=11700Hz, Q=1.41

 

I haven't tried this myself on rockbox so tell me if this sounds correct or are my calculations full of it tongue.gif

the settings make it sound very like the electri-q settings.

sounds great from my clip zip.

thank a bunch! :D

 

ah yes, you have another believer in eq-ing :P

Hi,

 

I bought the Philips SHE3590  for $7 (clearance item) in Sears.

I plugged it into my Sansa Clip+ but the sound ain't no good as of yet.

Both the SHE3590 and the Clip+ need some burn-in time.

I haven't used my new Clip+ for more than 20 hours as of yet.

What is the burn-in time for the SHE3590  and/or Sansa Clip+???

Is it  at least 50 hours?

 

Thanx.

I posted this in the IEM/Deals Thread, but thought it was worth posting in here.

 

I was shopping at my local Target today and noticed that the Philips SHE3580 are on the discount electronics rack for $4.64.

 

No way to buy online.  Instore only.  The Highland Park, IL store had a few in different colors.  I picked up a black pair.

Anyone know where to find these cheap in the EU?

Thanx, I think that it's the Clip+ which needs quite a bit of burn in.

We shall see. I like my SHE3590.
