Is it possible to create and EQ profile for someone with hearing loss? I wear hearing aids but my hearing is not that bad that I am deaf without them or anything. I wear them because they help with my tinnitus mainly. However I wonder if using similar methods to help with my hearing can also be applied to headphones? I have provided a copy of my last hearing test for anyone who wants to have a go to look at. Is it just a matter of boosting the upper ranges? If anyone can provide a sample profile for Foobar I can work my way from there. But only if you are sure this will help as I know you cannot replace those ranges only amplify them. By the way I can hear up to 11.5Khz but they only test you to 8Khz from what I can tell.
EDIT: Just to let you know I understand a little about 'boosting' certain frequencies and the damage it can do if done incorrectly. I am not talking about just blasting the high frequences by says 30dB because basically EQ should expand and compress (at least this is the correct manner and I read it is used in hearing aids otherwise you would just be blasting the frequencies that the person is deficient in and doing more damage as they would not know they are doing more damage due to not hearing it. Much like the person who cannot feel pain burns themselves and does not know it until they smell or see it).
