    Isone Pro - the best thing you could ever get for your headphones on your computer

    There have been other plugins that do the same basic function, but they might not necessarily have all the features of Isone (such as simulating different listening spaces or speakers setups). I haven't kept up with this area since I rarely use headphones at my desk these days, and most of the...

    The most reliable/easiest way to EQ headphones properly to achieve the most ideal sound (for non-professionals)

    BTW, someone had just asked something similar on gearslutz (one of the most popular forums for pro audio folks), and there's a lot of discussion about it--similar to what I've told you, but much more in-depth: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/low-end-theory/1303304-mic-preamps-they-really-needed.html

    The most reliable/easiest way to EQ headphones properly to achieve the most ideal sound (for non-professionals)

    Can you describe what you're trying to achieve? I'm assuming you want to use the mic to do recordings (voice, instrument), and then you're going to apply EQ to mimic the sonic signature of other microphones with desirable characteristics? If that's what you are trying to do, I wonder if it's...

    The most reliable/easiest way to EQ headphones properly to achieve the most ideal sound (for non-professionals)

    I think it depends on application. The mics I mentioned are all pro audio mics meant for professional studio recordings. Often mics that are "good for vocals" or any other specific applications will be tuned to not be neutral. For example, having "tube-like warmth" is often a desirable trait in...

    The most reliable/easiest way to EQ headphones properly to achieve the most ideal sound (for non-professionals)

    There are some mics out there that are voices in a specific way to sound pleasing for certain applications, such as recording vocals, guitars, drums, etc., so it's a good idea to look up the measurement data for the specific mic you want to get. I have an Audio-Technica condenser mic that's...

    The most reliable/easiest way to EQ headphones properly to achieve the most ideal sound (for non-professionals)

    Nope, you don't need super high quality. If you can hear it clearly, it's fine. In fact, the audiophile world too often becomes the audiofool world, wasting money on super high sampling rate and bits and lossless audio, when vast majority of the people in the community can't even reliably tell...

    The most reliable/easiest way to EQ headphones properly to achieve the most ideal sound (for non-professionals)

    The most important part is to use your ears, because even if something measures flat/neutral, your unique physiology could still be hearing a skewed frequency response. There are a number of causes--anything from hearing loss, birth defect, to wax buildup that hasn't been cleaned out in a long...

    MrSpeakers AEON Flow Open - Impressions Thread

    I just got a used pair of Aeon Flow Open, and right away there's a problem with the left screw for the headband adjustment. It cannot tighten all the way and the headband will easily slide out of position with just a little but of pressure. Anyone else had this problem? How did you fix it...
