The other EQ settings are Hi-fi (probably the best one apart from Wooduo), HSA v1.0, PlayFX (which you can set in settings to 3D or Bass boost), Rock, Pop, Classical, Bass, Jazz, User (with 5 bands to to tweak). Like most preset EQs I didn't like them but to be fair I didn't give them a lot of time.
I read elsewhere the Wooduo's have a v-shape EQ so it would be interesting to know what the Wooduo setting does - is it flat, to let that v-sound through as intended, does it invert the v somewhat to flatten the result, or does it emphasise the v further? I think Hi-Fi was the basic 'flat' EQ setting (to my ears), but the Wooduo setting was nice - they seem to have matched it well. I've never had the time to properly equalise phones to my player, but because I listen mainly on public transport, with a lot of competing bass rumbles, I'd want to leave the v-shape of the Wooduo intact - so I'll probably go between that setting and Hi-Fi.
I haven't tried full size headphones with it and probably won't, I only have ANC-7s anyway. This might not be much of a surprise, but I tried the N1 with some V-sonic R02Pro2s last night (also known as bass emphasising), and well, they were nowhere near as nice as the Wooduos! I listened to the same mix as I mentioned above too. I won't really say a bunch of subjective adjectives of why there was such a gap between the two in listening pleasure - just that I was surprised how big it was (although to be fair, the V-sonics were used on the Wooduo EQ, so you could narrow the gap somewhat in your estimation). As stated above one channel in my RE0s is broken so I can't compare these with it, but given the RE0s are more trebly it probably wouldn't be a meaningful comparison anyway. It will be interesting to see how the head-fi experts rate the Wooduos against the usual high-end comparators.
ITO pure aesthetics, the Wooduos have got to be up there with the best - the striking red ribbon cable is already getting some glances on the street (in my mind anyway) and, seriously, African rosewood casings? Lovely.
