Is 80% of "hi-fi" just EQ? - Page 4

post #46 of 50

I've still never found a decent parametric EQ (With a good UI) for windows.

 

Any ideas?

 

Whilst I'm here - 

 

Hardware vs Software EQ. Any thoughts?

 

EDIT: Just started using a parametric EQ for Foobar. There goes my afternoon.. (I've been using a graphic EQ made by Xnor for quite some time now)

 

...And possibly a few future headphone purchases, with any luck. I have a few pairs that I really enjoy the comfort and looks of, but feel that they don't quite have the sound signature that I'm looking for. It would be ideal to be able to achieve this with EQ. 

 

DOUBLE EDIT: aaaaaand I still prefer the Xnor EQ. More reliable, seems to be accurate, more intuitive.

Electi-q is pretty solid. Tons of options and pretty easy to use.

EasyQ is more or less the same thing as ElectriQ, and I understand that for some odd reason, certain people who can't get one to work can sometimes get the other to work. I use EasyQ on Foobar.

EQ is extremely important to get what you are looking for but what a headphone can dish out is king.

Ever read this article? Read it if you haven't, it is about what you are talking about.

"But whatever Bob, and others who can match his technical virtuosity, choose to do with the results of this project, I think that the field of high-end audio amplifier manufacture will never be quite the same again. High price and high status will continue to be handmaidens in audio, but the knowledge that high performance and high price need no longer be inseparable cannot help but impair the glamor of cost-no-object power amps."
