A new electronic Linkin Park album? I'm all over that!
@nicholars, that's an interesting EQ curve you've got there. I'll give it a try the next time I put on my HE-400 which unfortunately won't be tonight. But just to give some thoughts on it based on what it looks like, it seems a little too excessive for my tastes in the bass region and even the treble dip at 12Khz. A lot of people already consider the HE-400's bass forward, so having that big a gain would cause my head to rumble lol. Great for the wow factor, but in the long run would get tiring. Also from my experience I find most sibilants to be in the 8-9 Khz region where you haven't lowered much. Maybe this is why you say you still experience some sibilants?
Not too long ago there was a discussion here about purists vs non-purists, or something along those lines. I'd side myself on the purist side which explains why imo and for me most importantly your eq is a little excessive, even though I have some EQ of my own going on. Mine is just a pure treble fix, no other region is touched. If I change the entire frequency spectrum, then it won't even feel like im listening to an HE-400. I don't want to stray too far off the sound Hifiman intended. Keep in mind I'm not criticizing your EQ nicholars, just pointing out how we have different tastes and how it suits some more than others. I admire your dedication though to get the best sound for your tastes.
And while we're on the subject, I may as well post my latest effort on my config. I've changed it a little since my last revision. I took a huge scoop out of the treble. I really don't know what Hifiman was thinking putting that huge spike in there. This works great for me...
