Any EQ reccomendations for the 497's to boost the midrange in Foobar. Any other suggestions for lows highs also appreciated. I've never used the EQ in Foobar before and I'm looking to experiment. Oh, and I'm using a Chaintech and a Mint (8620) amp.

Try this:
77 Hz: -2 dB
110 Hz: -2 dB
156 Hz: +1 dB
622 Hz: +1 dB
1.2 kHz: -1 dB
2.5 kHz: +3 dB
3.5 kHz: +3 dB
5 kHz: -1 dB
7 kHz: +2 dB
10 kHz: -2 dB
14 kHz: -3 dB

Do play with the sliders for yourself. If you find a setting that sounds good, you may want to export and post it here.

For most music these EQ settings sound better, but for some metal vocals/distorted guitar, I knock down 2.5 and 3.5 kHz down a notch to 2. Other wise it seems a little too fatiguing to me.
