Quite suprising how low of a percentage ticked "i just tweak EQ to get the sound I want"

Where is the "Bass light head " ? redface.gif  Mids or Treble boost are ok for me tongue.gif (at least at home , outside a slight bass boost don't hurt)

 

At home : AD2000 , K702 , DT-48E are my fav headphones , (DT-48E is coming back soon , and i plan later to rebuy K702) .

Flathead/EQ tweaker. I don't think its reasonable to expect a headphone to be perfectly linear on its own. But I find that a flat, full-range sound works best, even if I listen to mostly electronic.

Sounds like there are some EQ heads out there. I have a 31 band equalizer so I can do whatever the mood suits me. Otherwise, I like bass with a slightly crispy treble.

another EQ head here too. using the 250 band eq i normally add subbass, slighly cut midbass, add sparkle to treble if needed, and other things around the spectrum depending on the headphone that i'm tuning. (but a great headphone would still be a much better place to start tuning than an el cheapo wink.gif)

I would rather just leave EQ turned off but no headphone is ever exactly how I want out of the box so I ticked EQ.

More of a treblehead, I've never been much of a fan of bass particularly with iems, which is probably why i find the hd800's just right.

I love treble and mids and a little bit of bass for rock music which is why I love my Q701s, but after hearing the stax SR-009s a couple weeks ago, I prefer flat response  now. 

post #74 of 109

I chose seeking something else. I would have chosen flat but I use EQ to get as flat as I can since we all know there is no perfectly flat headphone.

I'm an EQ head here. That being said, the right pair of cans is still more important. I listen to nothing but electronic DnB, house, psytrance etc. so I think the music is usually produced with the intention of aggressive bass notes. I usually EQ a slight bump in the 40-100hz region. Bass is a big deal for me but that doesnt mean I dont require great mids and highs. I certainly do. I think that if i listened to any rock or classical music I'd probably EQ the mids and highs to be more forward. The K550s and DT990s are my favorite headphones so far on my journey.
