Like you said, it doesn't matter.

 

Actually I think I know why it is different.. I am using the DSP plugin in AIMP3, not the VST plugin. It's using this file, dsp_eqfree.dll (2,560KB).

 

Edit:

Seems it works with the VST one too, except all the links are now dead in this thread.

Least adjustments possible to significantly reduce the sibilance / harshness... this EQ... 99% of detail of no EQ with about 25% of the sibilance! .... Also it is set to 0db.... Disable the low filter if it is enabled.... I think I need to go to equalisers anonymous - "My name is Nicholars and I can no longer listen to music without equalising it"

That's easily solved, just get the HE500 :smile:.

Any donations to thank for all my EQ'ing efforts? :D

Above EQ with basshead bass and better mids.

....... And i'm spent..... No more EQ for me

 

Please say THANKS if you like the EQ.... Nice to get some appreciation round here jeez :biggrin:

Thanks for the EQ efforts!!!

 

I think I have given up EQ'ing too, the HE400 come close to sounding great but never quite make it. On some days I love them and on others I don't.

 

 Its time to move up to the big boys, the LCD3 and the HD800 on the Cavalli Liquid Gold.

Just put it on the cc :tongue_smile:.

I am the only one who... likes the HE 400 treble or rather is afriad to upgrade to the LCD 2/3/X becuase I'm scared I'll lose the Bright treble that I like

Ahhh if only I had the money I would do that as well.... For poor people though this is a pretty damn good budget option, problem with going up to HE500 / LCD / HD800 is you need an amp as well which is another lump of cash, I could probably afford some HE500 soon but with the amp as well it gets rather expensive, especially compared to the £320 I paid for HE400 + Xonar STX.

I still like the bright treble on the HE400, Just with the peaks lowered.... Still sounds bright and sparkly but does not have the "SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS" "TZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" sound and ear pain!

 

Even with the EQ I posted above I would still call the HE400 "V shaped" Just not quite as extreme as the default EQ.

And that goodness for Audio GD. King Wa's amps are a pretty nice Bang for your buck OR there is the iBasso PB1... witrh 1.4w out of the balanced HeadPhone out it should drive an HE 500 prety well. I think Headfonia gave it positive feed back SE out with an HE 500. the Pb1 is about $150 used, you might even like the additional sound of a balanced HE 400 as well I found that a little more power was nice for tightening up the sound of  the HE 400. TIghter faster deeper bass out of my Audio GD Balanced out.

Does an amp make any difference to the HE400 at all vs a Xonar STX?

 

If I upgraded the amp now and then got some headphones later it would be less of a big lump of cash in one spend..... If it makes no difference to the HE400 over an STX though there is not much point.

I'll tell you in a couple days if I like Asgard2/Modi over Magni/Modi on the HE-400 or not.  It could just be a difference of tonality of the two amps that makes me like the Asgard2 over the Magni.

It could, again I really liked the improvements in sound I got from the replaced cable and balanced upgrade in sound I got from running my HE 400 balanced out from my Audio GD 10ES2 

 

Still I can't say much... my HE 400 is for sale and when I had it...I didn't listen to it much... stock sound for EDM it's great out side of that... well it just sits there as I'm not listening to a Lot of edm at home 

 

STILL I liked the upgrade I for from Pads, a cable and a better amp but in the end... it's on the FS thread

Everyone has a love/hate with treble - if it is there, they can't decide if they love it or hate it. But as with bass, we all know how we feel when it ISN"T there.

 

I am with you - I'd MUCH rather have an HE-400 living on the bright side than go to an LCD and feel like my music was on life-support. Most of the music that really gets me pumped NEEDS treble. But not everything I listen to NEEDs to be 'smooth' and 'natural'.
