Oh yea I can't answer this question

 

HOW EVER I FEEL that burning in with "noise" is assine

 

HOW EVER. I know a lot of ppl that EQ using frequancy sweeps. It sweeps from like 10-20k and they use it as a refrance to balance the headphone. Meaning no change in volume or preceived volume from 10-20k! I am how ever to lazy to EQ that much :D that and I'm not a big eq guy. If I want to change sound, I'll recable. get a new amp Mod or add some pads! HARD WARE MODS FTW [I'm not a huge software guy]

I haven't used that guide so can't sat much about it. I've already settled on a curve I like with the he-400. It works best for me so I'm not going to change it much. I'm a set and forget sort of guy :) 

 

Glad you got electri-q working right btw.

Quick mini review for my HE 400. Trying a more casual approach to reviews!

I currently own an old pair of ATH-A900 and I'm seriously considering replacing them with HE-400. Do you think that would be a worthwile upgrade? Would I get less bass considering A900s are closed cans?

Yes I think I need to do that as well because I have a problem with OCD EQ tweaking haha. Once I have 3 EQ's setup I think I will ban myself from fiddling with it any more!

Damn I should have re-cabled instead of using EQ... Silly me :rolleyes:

:O NO, I had the A900x and the HE 400 destroys it! Just as much bass, but more clarity!

Pff, hell no. I don't recommend any one take my crazy approach to sound <3. I'm just the guy who feels cables make a differance. I won't waste my time trying to convert you. We all know EQ is the cheapest way to improve EVERY headphone ;3

I trying to use the electriQ but it pops up with a box saying user name and response key.... I cannot use it until I enter one but AIXcoustic apparently no longer exist so I cannot register... Any way around this?....

 

*edit* Nvm I just use the poshopit edition instead.. The resizing thing works with that as well and saving presets works if you do it the way you said. What a PITA this program was to set up!

YUP

 

the best part of hard ware... OMG it's not volitale like software. Hard ware is pretty rock solid. Software how ever is not :/, it costs to have that safety and realiability!

I've been using EasyQ with the VST 2.4 adaptor for Foobar with 0 glitches. It saves my EQs and automatically loads whatever I had set up most recently, even if I didn't save. I've never tried ElectriQ, but they look like the same thing more or less. I can't resize the window, but whatever. 

Here's my EQ so far, btdubs. I'm still tweaking with it. Especially on the treble-peaky end, what sounds right to my ears greatly depends on what I'm listening to.

Lol, it's just something I found on Google image search. A little bass head family.

If you use simple EQ then it saves OK... However if you try to plot points onto it to mark frequencies and then bypass them... When you load it up again it forgets which you bypassed and gives you some crazy result.... So before you save it remove any bypassed points and keep it as simple as possible then it works.... Wish this program would just work properly.... Probably the paid version is less buggy but it is no longer available...

I agree on this also.. Finding the right cables (power,usb,rca, headphone cable) can indeed make a difference if u have a rig that can show it... wink.gif
