Post your EQ settings for your headphones

post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 

Gonna try to turn this topic into a glossary of EQ settings. Please post in this format:

 

Brand Model EQ Program
Audio Technica ATH-CKS77 Balanced Realtek Onboard
Denon AH-D2000 Balanced Electri-Q
Denon DN-HP700 Balanced Realtek Onboard
M-Audio Q40 Balanced Realtek Onboard
Panasonic  HTF600 Balanced Realtek Onboard
Sony  XB500 Balanced Realtek Onboard
V-Moda  Crossfade LP2 Balanced Realtek Onboard

 

 

Hopefully this will help a lot of us audiophiles who are struggling (or just lazy) with EQ tweaks. Bass Boost and Neutral EQs would probably be in top demand but that is just my opinion :D

 

Maybe some posters can make EQ requests for the veteran equalizers here to answer.

 

Great posts so far, keep them coming please!

Denon DN-HP700

M-Audio Q40 (none really if using WASAPI mode it outweighs the small EQ tweaks + DS output, otherwise possibly)

Goal of EQ? To balance out the frequency response from dips/peaks

Unfortunately, I do not have permissions to attach files.

 

However, I just followed the tweaking done in this thread:

For the D7000, you may have to change the bass equalization a little, since it already has a tighter bass.

 

For the D2000, I find the equalization settings excellent.

this thread is a good idea, DNZGamer you should create a table on the initial post with links to all the posts for all the different headphones settings.

Will constantly update the original post to make it easy to find your headphones, the program and/or the type of EQ for those searching. Hope we get a good glossary of EQ settings!

 

Personally really would love to see some Grado EQs and the V-Moda m80. I would love to bass boost both of these, the RS1 for more bass in general and the m80 for maximum impact/thud (I want to feel the pounding).


Also if someone can make my UM3x sound more fun, that would be great!

Here is my AD700 EQ settings using my Audigy 2ZS with KX drivers EQ.  Using this the bass extend mostly flat down to 50hz before it starts to rolloff.  This turns it into a much more balanced headphone and sounds alot better this way for all genres of music and gaming/movies.  Stock sound is very thin and bright sounding as well as uninvolving due to lack of bass response and extension entire bass lines are lost complety or greatly reduced in volume its just lacking here.  In order to avoid clipping I lowered the master gain down 12db in the eq.  How good this will sound depends on the quality of your equalizer If your using something like foobars stock equalizer or realtek equalizer it won't sound as good. Still not a bass head headphone by any means but I like it alot more this way still the most comfortable pair of headphones with the largest soundstage and most open sound out of all the headphones I've used only further enhanced by the rpg wizards dolby headphone I used for listening in foobar.

I'd like to bass boost Skullcandy Aviators. If someone could do that, I'd be the happiest man in the world. I've been wanting a reason to buy the Aviators over LP2s (for the looks, mainly), and now I will have one if someone could do this for me.
