They seem pretty open to adding/looking into IEMs/headphones/features for future updates, so maybe shoot them a message or tweet or post here and maybe they will appear next update.

I am almost certain the headphone list is only used for spl setting, they do not tune ant eq for different iem, you cab always add your own headphone/iem on the list.

I think it does tune the app for the headphone. If it didn't they wouldn't need the Ohms of the headphone.
SPL measures sensitivity of the music and the impact of your ears. If it only measured SPL, you'd just need the headphone sensitivity m/w.
When I listen to a set headphone on canopener, then listen to a unknown/line out, it sounds different.

Cant say I hear any difference.

Just to clarify: the headphone profiles are primarily used for SPL measurement/prediction in the Dosimeter. In some cases, we will "recommend" an EQ setting for a particular headphone profile, but it's not the main reason for having the profiles.

 

In general, I'm not that comfortable with corrective EQ profiles for headphones because it assumes that we know better than you do what you like or dislike about your own headphones, and it can be thrown off by the headphone positioning on the head, different ear shapes, sizes, etc. While we do have the data to do something like this if we decided to in the future, CanOpener is more about giving you the tools to do what sounds best to you, and it has a really flexible EQ section for doing so.

 

Let us know what phones you want added most, and we'll do our best to test them out. The Beyer's have been on our list for awhile; hoping to get those in soon — thanks!

The Senn. HD 800's are already in our database, but we'll add the others to look at. Thanks!

Are there any other Apps that offer EQ calibration to audibly flat response? That is what I would want an App like this to do. Even if it wasn't perfect, it would give me a good starting place.

There is only one app offered by golden ears but that is also does its own thing and is no way as refined and well structured as CanOpener.

I'm specifically looking for calibration profiles for particular headphone models.
post #73 of 176
Have a look at there free version, it might be what you are looking for.,

A few posts above me, Devkerr said that Can Opener doesn't have EQ profiles. I don't really need SPL correction.

I'm pretty sure the app you're looking for is Accudio by Golden Ears. This app has fr correction for a long list of phones. It also has a feature where you can replicate one phone with another phone. There is a free version, but the pay version is the one where fr correction is applied.
