You crazy guy. I've never ever worn these while doing parkour... That's what I have in ears for! Sheesh man. Headphones need to fit the application, and on ears/over ears don't do well with the amount of movement that comes from parkour.

Have you heard Freddy's voice? I'm pretty sure he could've broken whatever he wanted to if he so chose with only his voice.

I'm ordering a pair of M-100's, and I want to be able to make music with them.
Can someone tell me how to balance out the equalization or at least make it to where I can produce well?
I'm using FL Studio 11 (Fruity edition), and I think a parametric EQ will do fine. I just need the right measurements.
Please and thank you!

Not really measurements but I find if I reduce the bass (full range) starting at 500Hz by -6db the sound matches much more closely to a balanced signature.

Really? That's not my experience at all.

Is that all I need to do? People have talked about the mids being a bit lacking, so I assumed you needed to have a '^' shaped EQ.
Also, do you know if Dolby Advanced Audio will have any effect on what I make, or if AUSIOALL will prevent any of the sound changed it might make.

That's for me. You guys may find it different depending on source and audio chain. I'm comparing to the other headphones that I own and have heard with my gear. With a -6db reduction the mids aren't as overwhelmed and the treble is allowed to breath.

I'm comparing mostly to the LCD-XC for my reference to 'balanced sound', although the XC isn't quite as detailed as some other high end headphones, like HD-800. For me the m-100 is just what it is, a $300 dollar headphone with good detail and musical mids with tight and punchy bass even though the bass is very elevated.

Every frequency has a perceived effect on the other so if the bass is over elevated the others will sound recessed. If you raise the mids for a '/\' that's basically the same as reducing bass and treble when volume matched. I certainly wouldn't reduce the treble as I feel the m-100 could use a hair more sparkle.

That's how I see it anyway. YMMV.
