However folks got lives and convenience important so I can see the need. Strictly on quality of signal the less links the better.  It's a balance of preferences though

I think there isn't much of a difference unless your dealing with high wattages (definitely the case with subs). Headphones are very sensitive to small changes, but most high-end headphones and in-ears (even more sensitive) use detachable cables with negligible differences.

Yep, I know a guy who got a high-end hardwired cable for his HD 800, and even then, the differences were subtle.

Hello guys, been a lurker for a hot minute. I've got the JVC SZ2000's, a Fiio e10K, HM5 earpads inbound and using Equalizer APO (as I'm mainly a desktop listener). I've been using jiiteepee's GUI which works well.

I was just wondering what settings people are using for the EQ, if anyone?

 

EDIT: I've uploaded my settings plus the GUI software used in conjunction with Equalizer APO (not included in the zip file) if anyone wishes to have a play around with it. Would be cool to see other peoples EQ settings; my settings work well for almost all genres with a good kick to the head (of bass that is).

@trancefiend I can report on what I have experience with.

 

Brainwavz HM5 (pleather)


Pros: Really comfortable; get your ears away from the drivers, excellent isolation, perfect seal.

 

Cons: Can get really hot; the quantity of bass is still there, but it does not make your skull vibrate as the thicker softer pads absorb some of the shock waves.

 

Effect on sound: They make it better.

 

Effect on isolation: They isolate the same as stock.

 

Beyerdynamic EDT770V (velour)

 

Pros: They brighten up the sound a little; they are really comfortable; they get your ears away from the drivers.

 

Cons: They fit a little small on the headphone, and are hard to put on. They hurt my jaw a little; They leak so much sound.

 

Effect on sound: They brighten up the sound while keeping a lot of the bass hit.

 

Effect on isolation: Awful, awful isolation. My wife could hear my music in the next room.

 

 

JVC HAM55X (pleather)

 

Pros: They get your ears away from the drivers; skull shaking levels of bass reverberation.

 

Cons: My ears do not fit in the opening and they are almost on-ears; they are so uncomfortable imo.

 

Effect on sound: Stronger bass and less veil as the drivers have room to breath.

 

Effect on isolation: They isolate a little better than velours but not as good as stock.
