So glad you asked this question. This has been such a KEY part of this whole process. My music collection is made up of from the napster, limewire and current era (i have the physical copy of course) along with ripped cds and concert videos... before i go on with that do you guys find music videos to be fairly average in sound? I LOVVEEE some of the doors concerts.. along with acdc, queen and hendrix and i find the audio very bland, might be just my ears. ANYWAY so my music collection is from different states of technological eras so everything is ALL OVER the place in regards to sound quality and volume. Do you have some free and easy ways to get everything onto the same level? A while back i posted about how i would just change the song and the volume/quality would die and all my adjustments were pretty much pointless. I use a mac, so ive looked at programs such as ivolume which is supposed to do the job fairly well.. but at price... and a price that i havent paid yet.

If i turn off all eq settings i basically get a very damp and flat sound (no bass and sounds tinny). Ive tried from a different source, NO IDEA whether or not its used for headphones. The amp i tried from is a Pioneer SC-LX73 that i bought about 2 years ago, i know its got some incredible power and quality for speakers but in regards to how it powers headphones i wouldnt have a clue. See the idea im getting with these headphones.. most probably all headphones is that you have to work with them in relative to their strong points so just slipping them into my home amplifier without any adjustments is pointless. Ive been adjusting these more and more and i have to admit im starting to like the sound..... i tell you what, when i get this perfect i am taking pictures, screen shots and notes on the settings.
I appreciate the frequency response pics guys but ive got to tell you... i have absolutely no idea what that means (wish i did)... could someone briefly explain what they mean? atleast the important parts?
