    Only if someone gives me a pair.

    NO he did not!

    Not everyone EQs them. Now that you know they are Nighthawks, you should check out the Nighthawk thread.

    Hey golfinggino, I posted my EQ sets for both pads a couple pages back. However, this is only for the Nightowl. I don't own the Nighthawk. You can try my EQs, but they are obviously not going to sound correct with your NIghthawk.

    EQ set to use with the ultrasuede pads:

    Pre-Amplifying: - 2

    50Hz: + 0.5
    63Hz: + 0.5
    80Hz: + 0.5
    160Hz: - 0.5
    200Hz: - 0.5
    250Hz: - 0.5
    315Hz: - 0.5
    1.6kHz: + 0.5
    2kHz: + 0.5
    2.5kHz: + 0.5
    3.15kHz: + 1
    4kHz: + 1
    5kHz: + 0.5
    6.3kHz: + 0.5
    10kHz: + 0.5
    16kHz: + 0.5


    EQ set to use with the pleather pads:

    Pre-Amplifying: - 2

    80Hz: - 0.5
    100Hz: - 0.5
    125Hz: - 1
    160Hz - 1
    200Hz: - 1
    250Hz: - 1
    315Hz: - 1
    400Hz: - 1
    500Hz: - 1
    630Hz: - 0.5
    1.6kHz: + 0.5
    2kHz: + 0.5
    2.5kHz: + 0.5
    3.15kHz: + 1
    4kHz: + 1
    5kHz: + 1
    6.3kHz: + 1
    8kHz: + 0.5
    10kHz: + 1
    16kHz: + 1

    Give it a try though. This will give you a good starting point.

    I would not own any headphones if I had to do all that. With all my gear I would need a big notebook to consult every time I wanted to listen to anything:)

    sorry I thought I posted this in the nighthawk thread - anyway I already posted them for sale lol

    Wow that was quick. I loved mine straight out of the box but they do recommend burning them in for 150 hours before they reach their final sound.

    I am in the smaller group of people who thinks that no headphone sounds correct without an EQ being used on it. I have never owned a headphone to date that I have not put an equalizer on. That is the only way I can make things sound exactly right. Each time I get a headphone though, and post up my EQ for it in its thread, I always get messages from other owners telling me how much better the headphone sounds when they use my EQ. :p

    Hey golfinggino, you may want to hold off on selling it for a bit. The Nightowl and the Nighthawk have a solid burn in period. Both headphones will progress up to around 140-150 hours. Once you hit that point, they will be at their best sound they are capable of.

    ... and how exactly would I do this with multiple daps, and my PC .... using many iems, buds and headphones.... there would be no time to enjoy the music.

    @golfinggino if the seller misrepresented the item, are you not entitled to a full refund?
     
  11. golfinggino
    im not worried - I will sell them for more then what I paid :)
     
  12. nwavesailor
    Are they listed in the classifieds?

    Es100 is awesome. Order a balanced hd700 cable from Amazon for your hawks.you can get one for like $40. Opens up soundstage a little and brings the mids forwsfo ever so slightly. It is awesome
