I've been hanging around here for quite a while, reading and learning but this is my first post.
I was just wondering if anyone had experienced the Senn IE800 with the Accudio app on iPhone 5.
This app is supposedly "correcting" the sound of your headphones, on the basis of a database of headphones freq responses.
Well, my first reaction was that I really did not like what it did to the sound.
I found it the highs overly present, and the bass was practically gone. It sounded a bit like I was listening to FM radio.
Now, removing some bass could be ok, given that IE800 delivers quite some. But it goes too far on music where the bass is there for a reason (e.g. hip-hop, RnB). After trying with other genre (soul, classical, jazz), I find that my liking of the EQuing done by the app is really genre-dependent and actually not bad in some cases.
Anyone had a similar experience with the IE800, or with another headphone?
The only reason I do not regret buying this app, is that I like the EQ when simulating the signature of other headphones (Audeze LCD-2).
