post #3526 of 19959

Just put my daughter for a nap and put my HD800 of F3 on. When the music came on I literally thought that I had the computer signal going into my speaker rig for a second there and reached to my receiver to turn down the volume, so that my daughter can sleep. Needless to say, the volume did not decrease. This mirage did not last long, but it was long enough to make me think -- DAMN THESE ARE GOOD HEADPHONES!!!

Hey everyone, looking for a better EQ for my HD800's. Right now just using the one that comes with Foobar. Anyone have any suggestions?

How many bands does the EQ have on Foobar

Try this, it really works with the HD800, Follow the install steps and try the different settings, It will make your HD800 sound amazing. you can also Conver your music to flac or other format and take it with you on the go, with the same settings.

I'm not a fan of dolby headphone, although I didn't try the eq correction suggested.

I am really enjoying my HD800 with my new Asus Essence One Muses Edition. I know I've gone on and on in the past about how my Pioneer AVR sounds as good as any amp I've tried but now I finally see I've been trying the wrong amps. While my Pioneer reproduces good sound and a nice frequency balance, for once I'm hearing increased depth and width of stage, more pinpoint imaging, tightness and control of bass, faster dynamics, and just an overall more real, dynamic, and musical experience. I finally feel like I'm hearing everything the HD800 has to offer.

 

It's not a night and day difference, and I think a lot of casual listeners might never notice, but I'm definitely a believer in proper amplification (and D to A conversion) now. I also removed my "Anax mod" because it sounds more open and clear without it and I'm no longer noticing any annoying "tizz" that used to occasionally crop up in some recordings.

 

I feel as though I've scaled a hurdle and my eyes (and ears) are more open now. I'm guessing more than a few of you are nodding your head thinking "been there, done that." I'm very happy smile.gif

Glad you're happy with your new amp.  All anyone of should really want is to be happy with our gear, so we can just concentrate on enjoying the music.

I have roughly the same experience using the HD800 amped. Of course, the sound will vary according to the type of music, whether it's low-fi garage punk or hi-fi pop or classical...but the sound is still shockingly good. And it's my good fortune that I get this kind of sound through an iMac, using iTunes with Sound Enhancer to increase the stereo separation. 

 

The sound is just "right." I realize that some have found the HD800 a little picky - but I guess I just lucked out with the synergy on my system. I know that because the same synergy isn't there when I listen to the same music using my stereo system.

I don't think the HD800 is picky, I think the people that listen to it are picky dt880smile.png
