Looking at the aviators graph I would try something like this to boost the bass its already quite bass heavy just lacks in the deeper subbass compared to the midbass also raised the midrange at 1K up a little bit ymmv depending on the equalizer your using.  Also may be better idea to lower the rest of the frequencies below zero instead of raising the bass frequencies.

EQ and other tools can really make a tremendous change for a headphone. Here is my EQ setup for LCD-2, HD600, EPH-100 and Vsonic GR06.

I suggest finding you own headphone graph here or some other place and go from there. As we all find out eventually there can be a big different with what the graphs say and what what we actually hear with the headphones on, but the graphs is a good blueprint to start with. 

 

 

In the case of the Vsonic GR06 EQ can transform a solid but slightly muddy and lacking some clarity type 100$ performer to really a high end headphone. I wish the soundstage was a bit deeper and the sound slightly less grainy, but other than that it's one of the best all-round headphones I ever tried. Anything with instruments is spectacular, especially classical.

I'm using J River Media Center.

 

 

 

First I lower the bass with EasyQ.  If I'm using crossfeed this is not necessary with some genres.

 

 

 

 

Then I use a plugin called TB EZQ that really do the magic refining the sound for the GR06. It's like these two products where made to complement each other. The increase in clarity, detail, imaging and soundstage is by quantum leaps. This is working great with all the other headphones mentioned here too, and will do so with any headphone that is lacking clarity or treble refinement in my experience. Sometimes its enough to just move the dot a tiny bit to the right or add some warmth to make the sound just perfect even with a perfect EQ curve. This is a great tool to increase clarity without adding too much harshness.

 

 

 

 

 

 And last but no least I use J Rivers built in Effects that increases the soundstage size and layering beautiful with this headphone. Not all headphones respond as good as GR06 to these settings. This is open to play around with or avoiding completely.

Don't miss J Rivers built in crossfeed called Headphones. It blurs some detail especially in the lows, but with some 50's, 60's and 70's music with very separated channels it's a must to use at least use the subtle setting for a more natural sound using headphones. I find this to be the best crossfeed I've tried so far, and I have tried a few of them.

Don't forget to lower the volume by -10 dB in Parametric Equalizer to avoid clipping

 

 

 

LCD-2:

 

 

 HD600

 

  

EPH-100

 

 

Hope this will prove helpful.

My EQ (or "Say again?")

 

 

Believe it or not, this sounds great to me.  But, I still think it's funny, which is why I'm sharing it here.

JVC HA-S600

(Poweramp on Android)

 

 

Note the lowered volume (-preamp, it still has plenty of it) and tones on the bottom (half bass full treble).

This is what I use with my JVC S500 need to drop the preamp down 10db to to not hear noise from my soundcards output.

and while HM5 broke (no more bass output on one side) and will have to send them in for a replacement/repair frown.gif this is the EQ settings I used for them when they where working these have good bass extension but lacking in quantity this brings it up to a satisfying level.

I like this setting with the DT48's.

Great idea for a thread.

 

I've made some Electri-Q presets for the Hifiman HE-400 based on FR graphs. I'll post them in a little while.
