Is there any way to make the window bigger? It is really small and fixed size, makes it difficult to use.

just like easy Q was :/

Jeez this thing is hard to use..... Trying to do a basic EQ and it is not simple!..... Maybe I should just stick with the 31 band default equaliser!

At first glance it may seem complicated but it's not really. Just click on the line and it will create points which you can adjust. Double click a dot for finer accuracy, Also if you go into Menu > Skin > Gain Range you can adjust up to 30 db. By default it's only 10 db.

 

Also I don't think you can adjust the window size.

To me the HE400 at default settings is far too sibilant and "tizzy" in the treble, literally hurts my ears..... maybe because you are listening to rock etc. I would rather use different headphones for those type of genres. Not sure what you mean about the "trying to get a downward sloping line" lol.


Downward sloping line literally translated:

 


Flat sucks!

Basically I didn't like either Easy-Q or Electri-Q, but a little experimentation should sort either of them out. I am actually not that big into Foobar - its just that other media players are even worse.

I'm not that big into eq so :/

The new research by harmon says something like a diagonal line sloping downward 10db from 20hz to 20khz is ideal, but as to what kind of compensation, I have no idea.

Not sure I would want it that extreme.... The reason for the "downward sloping line" is due to the HE400 frequency response.... the EQ I did  probably looks more like this.....

Right! That didn't happen! Just bought a pair of a Head-Fi'er :atsmile:

you get just the stock pads, or did you opt for some after markets OR are you going to try and Mod ur Pleathers your self :3 

 

also any plans for a new cable :D 

post #13798 of 20229

It should come with stock velour and pleather. I've PM'ed modulor for the jerg's. Is re-cabling more of a common practice/sure upgrade with these headphones than it is with other headphones?

post #13799 of 20229

The cables are stiff. I would change the cable. I don't know if it makes any difference sound wise, but it would still be worth it :tongue_smile:

 

HE-400 normally ony comes with stock pleather. The velour ones are for HE-500. Most people buy velour ones though.

If the new research Harman response curve were to be applied to Tyll's method for measuring, ideally a headphone should measure like this (LCD2 used as reference)
