You seem to have Senheiser HD558's in your Main rig  ...  If you have EqualizerAPO running, how this EQ sounds:



 



Channel: L R

Preamp: 0,00 dB

Filter : ON PEQ Fc 10 Hz Gain 8,76 dB BW Oct 2,318



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 198 Hz Gain -2,98 dB BW Oct 5,995



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 829 Hz Gain 2,02 dB BW Oct 1,441



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 1674 Hz Gain 3,13 dB BW Oct 0,930



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 3613 Hz Gain -1,99 dB BW Oct 0,930



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 5598 Hz Gain 3,43 dB BW Oct 0,964



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 9024 Hz Gain -6,45 dB BW Oct 0,500



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 12089 Hz Gain 16,38 dB BW Oct 0,694



Filter : ON PEQ Fc 16294 Hz Gain 3,44 dB BW Oct 0,307



 



You can save this to say as "pre-filt.txt" and include it in config.txt (add line Include: pre-filt.txt).

Here is one thread you can start from ... http://www.head-fi.org/t/691762/10-band-multichannel-parametric-eq-gui-for-windows

Just had a go at this tutorial.  All seems to work quite well, but I was getting lots of problem with the virtual audio cable drivers (stutter even with high priority settings on audio apps withing task manager)

 

I opted to try VB-CABLE Driver from VB-Audio Virtual Cable web site (VBCABLEDriver_Pack42b.zip)

 

Works great.

By following this tutorial I will be able to play capture any audio output of Windows programs and make it run through the EQ before outputting it my headphone right?

So is the author still active? I can't seem to download Electri Q anywhere. Links on the main site are dead.

AIXcoustic Creations is history but, you probably still can find few download links for the free Electri-Q (posihfopit edition) through google search.

Thanks. I download a .dll. Can I just drop this in my Winamp folder to make it work? :/

I'm not sure if that's for Winamp but a VST .dll so you should use VST bridge plug-in for winamp to get it loaded. You probably can find the winamp plug-in as well by googing using 3 term search criteria:  electri-q winamp uploadgeneration

To be honest I have no idea what VST and VSt Bridge means.

VST bridge for winamp allows to use VST type effects in winamp. VST is widely used plug-in standard (mainly used on music production) .

I have equalized my Ms-1i to more or less flat descending line based on home measurements. I wanted to then add diffuse field EQ curve (based on this: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/harman-researchers-make-important-headway-understanding-headphone-response) but it sounded really rubbish and coloured, any ideas why so?

The diffuse field response shown there is, I believe, the measured in-ear response to an average of loudspeakers positioned around the head. Supposing you EQed your headphones to flat responding, what you need is a compensation curve that subtracts the in-ear response to flat FR headphones from the diffuse field response. I don't know where one would find such responses though.

I did the measurements with the headphones on my head but the mic was not inside my ear, it was just close, so I guess they would reflect the in-ear response.

 

If I understand you correctly I should first use an inverse of the DF curve, and then EQ to flat sounding with sweeps? But in this case it would only work if a headphone was DF equalized in the first place, wouldn't it?

 

I did similar thing with an IEM, I listened to log and linear sweeps to EQ it to flat sounding, then added the DF curve and the tonality is really nice now, so in this case it kinda worked.
