Do i need an equalizer?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Sorry that My question is broader than the title suggests.
Yesterday I bought my first iPhone. I was all excited until i found that there is no way to use Spotify with an eq. I use hifiman re400 but it sounds compressed, flat and weightless. With android I could make the soundstage more spacious and boost the bass. It sound be a shame to go back to android over an eq but should i do it? or is it better idea to buy different iem?

~Which IEM do you have? I usually do not recommend it to use an EQ cuz you're ruining the original recording making it no longer sounds like'' faithfully''. If you're looking for new IEMS and like me, you are a bass head, I recommend the T PEOS H300 to. T PEOS H200 that are currently available, but will soon go out of stock, offers a powerfull bass where they thought the treble would sound horrible but even the treble still sounded soft without shrill tones.

 

This is an picture of the T PEOS H200, while the T PEOS H300 wil be much better

Equ did not work with Spotify. I have not tried the other apps. Are you sure they work with Spotify?

That's the thing. I'm looking for an eq that controls all audio, not just iPod and iTunes.

If you need that much EQ, maybe you just bought the wrong 'phones?

Might be it. Since I am obviously a newbie, I haven't been sure when personal preference comes in: Do you buy a "balanced" earphone and equalize according to your taste, or do you buy a headphone that is designed for that taste to begin with?

Personally, I think it is better to buy a headphone that has a signature you like.
