Cans Sound BAD while Watching Movies.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello, This is my first post, but have been reading for awhile. I am new to the Audiophile scene. I have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro 250 ohm with a Objective 2 (O2) Amp. All my ALAC music sounds great from my ipod, but when I try to watch any action movie in Blue-Ray any action scene sounds Horrible. The Bass just sounds awful. The source is from Desktop PC, and I have a ASUS XONAR DSX Audio Card. I have also tried to mess with EQ still bad. I would appreciate any help thank you all.

Does your ALAC music sound good if you listen to it on the PC instead of the iPod ? Do you have any DSP effects, EQ, reverb, Dolby Headphone, etc. enabled on the sound card ?

I think you need to provide more details about your setup.

 

With AnyDVD HD running so that I can watch Blu-ray in MPC-HC with MadVR and LAV Filters, using the proper downmix of:

 

  • Center: 0.7071
  • Surround: 1.000
  • LFE: 2.2400

 

You should have plenty of bass.

 

I don't know how any of the commercial players handle audio downmixing. Most downmixes simply discard LFE.

Thank you for the reply. Actually the FLAC files do not sound as good coming from my PC.When I go into my sound settings on my PC the ASUS Speakers are the only thing enabled inorder for me to hear sound through my headphones.There is a headphone option ,but it is shaded out.  I have tried to mess with the EQ settings during a movie and music also. I do not know why it does not sound as clear as my Ipod.

I do not know where to even mess with these settings I am sorry. I am still new to this but willing to learn. I just want to have great Sound!

If your on windows 7 or vista go into your start button and type in sound. Click on sound. Right click inside the box and make sure "show disabled devices" is on. Then right click on your soundcard and enable it if its grayed out. Right click again and select as default device. Open your Xonar Audio Center and match your settings up to mine. (hi-fi enabled, svn off, 2 channels for music, 6 or 8 channels for dvd).

 

In general, its probably best to not use any other settings but hi-fi. Its okay to use EQ if you don't like hi-fi sounds, but EQ should always be "leveled" (nothing should be in positive dB) to avoid distortion. Make sure room effects are always off.

 

Make sure all recording devices are disabled to avoid noise from EFI/RFI.
