Oh Boy here we go....  Don't forget to condition your houses electric current and remember if you shuffle your feet on the carpet make sure you touch something metal to discharge yourself.

EQ is like cheating for me. I think I wont be able to notice IEMs real differences between them if I use it constantly. Only for fun purposes.

So in other words you could have saved yourself a lot of money by buying one pair of IEM and then EQ them to sound like other IEMs. So you have wasted a lot of money.

If it was only so simple that EQ could fix every fault of a headphone lol. OK I sense your sarcasm though. :P

Maybe, but I never managed to make an IEM sound like another one using EQ. .

I suppose I must have misinterpreted this then.

i cant believe how much brighter and with more defined mids s600's got after ~50 hours of burn-in. old eq still suits great, well, maybe mids could be decreased a bit now.

Without EQ, my HD650/O2-ODAC combination is unbelievably shrill and features a sound stage that closely resembles a gelatinous blob, despite the notorious "warm" and "dark" reputations of both.  That's just how my ears work.  With EQ - which is free and doesn't do anything I don't want it to do - I can turn that unholy mess into audio nirvana.  No peaks, no notches, perfect fidelity, brilliant separation.  It means I hear my music instead of my headphones/amp.

Well I'm not sure the O2 is known for it's warmth. It's known for being totally flat, "sterile" and a bad match with the HD650.

With an amp like the Bottlehead Crack you don't need EQ for the HD650 to get soundstage and not being shrill.

This is exactly why EQ is so good and important if you have gear like the O2-HD650.  I'm also confident you can get all that tube magic in the future with the use of DSP if you so choose. Maybe it's already exist and I'm just not aware.

Please share the EQ settings you are using. That is what this thread is for.

My EQ is still a work in progress.  I'm almost there, but not quite.  What's interesting, though, is the direction it's going. 

 

(Top Electri-Q image is my left ear settings, bottom one is the right.)

 

When I was tinkering last night, the curve I landed upon stirred up a memory of the results of a simple hearing test I played with months ago.  I did not set out to recreate it; it just happened that way.

BTW: which software do you use for EQ? 

post #74 of 78

I use two instances of Electri-Q in a program called EnergyXTE.
