Desktop - Low Bass with ATH-M50s

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I built a computer with an [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157512]ASRock H97M Pro4[/url] motherboard. Problem is, the sound quality is not top notch. I have been looking through searches for hours, looking through my Realtek HD Audio Manager, but cannot find a way to improve the bass and treble of the sounds. Checking the Enhancement tab, there was no Bass Boost. I just bought an ATH-M50s headphone and would like to hear some high quality music. My HP Envy 15 laptop definitely plays music great with the Beats Audio with the bass on my ATH-M50s. Instead of the Enhancement tab, it has a Tone Controls with two sliders, Bass and Treble. 

 

Is there a way to improve Bass and Treble on my desktop?

What are you trying to improve the bass with? Movies? Music? Gaming?

Mainly music. I haven't watched any movies and with gaming, I don't really notice.

honestly Beats Audio algorithm just over boosting the bass. it's like Sony's Mega Bass algorithm.. bass quantity is not quality.  you are missing lots of bass texture with those algorithms. if you really need good quality bass, invest some money on a better quality amp/dac.

Beats Audio is nice to have with really cheap headphones (or I am guessing Beats Headphones). With higher-end headphones you want it off. ATH-M50s are kind of on the line. Personally with mine I prefer to have beats Audio off and use WASAPI exclusive with an EQ. Find a player with those and use those.

Try MediaMonkey. That's what I use for a music player. It has a built in graphical EQ so you can adjust the various frequencies as much as you want.

For a system wide Windows EQ that works with everything you play music on (games and movies, too), there is Equalizer APO: http://sourceforge.net/p/equalizerapo/wiki/Documentation/

It's open source software that is for more advanced EQ settings, so might take you a while to learn to use it. I understand that they have a graphical EQ module for it: http://sourceforge.net/projects/peace-equalizer-apo-extension/

That's probably better to start out with if you are not familiar with working with PEQ. Here's a tutorial that explains a bit about how parametric equalization works: http://music.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-use-a-parametric-equalizer--audio-2301

Will take some research and experimentation to use PEQ.

I'm looking for a more system wide Windows EQ and that seems to work. I'm not sure which settings would be the best but I'll try to use the guide. Thank you!
