I'm pretty darn good with computers, i should be able to figure this out.
Hah and you posted twice when you said that noob. ;) I'm just kidding (about the noob part).
It took me a few minutes to figure it out too, I went to the enhancements tab and didn't see anything there and I was like what? I had to read the help file where I found that you 'interface' with the plugin by editing a couple of text files in the installation directory, one sets the volume in -db and points to the EQ file you wish to use, the other is the actual EQ file with the filter settings.
One easy way to test if it's working is to edit the C:\Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config\config.txt file and change the -8 or whatever it defaults to to something like -20, hit save and you should IMMEDIATELY hear the volume drop. If you do it means it's working. Proceed to editing the example.txt to set up your EQ settings and again, the instant you hit save, it should take effect.
These are the the files I ended up setting up.
Config.txt reads as follows
#Preamp: -8 dB
And I don't use example.txt anymore, I made separate .txt files for each headphone. When I want to switch headphones I just remove a # from one and paste it in front of the one I was using so that only 1 profile is active.
Here is my profile for the DT990.txt
