Sony MDR-G45

    So I just got a pair of Sony MDR-G45's and they are great. But now, I have a couple of questions.

    1. What can I do to improve these phones?? (like mods or EQ tips)
    2. Do I need to burn these in? I normally listen to them at 50% on my 2nd gen touch, and how long would be a good burn-in time??

    Thanks, and if you are looking for great $15 phones, these are great.

    Also, a noobish question. What would one categorize these as, cans or phones?and full, or clip on??

    Hmm.. started listening to a pair of these that were on clearance for $10.00 and all I can say is, after 72 hours of burn-in, they're just ordinary headphones.  The JVC Flats are much better than these, that's for sure.

    I still have this. All I did was, change the cushion of G45 with JVC flat. And it feels and sounds way better.
    JVC flat is great headphone too in the sense of its performance. Not for built quality. I bought JVC flat twice and both of them broken easily.
    Here is how it looks like

    Hi there,
    I have a pair of these headphones. At first, they sounded pretty bland - very midrange strong with poor bass. However, I have applied equalization to them and GREATLY improved the sonics! It goes from sounding low-fi to some fairly decent headphones. At least, for the price. Below is the EQ curve I have applied. If you have a pair of these, try this out, I think you'll be impressed with the sonics of them afterwards.
    31Hz +1.5
    62Hz +1
    125Hz -1.5
    250Hz -0.5
    500 Hz +/- 0
    1kHz -1
    2kHz -1
    4kHz -2.5
    8kHz +0.5
    16kHz +1.5
    The fidelity sounds much closer to the real thing after this. It may need some tweaking to suit your ears, but I think this EQ curve should make a dramatic improvement regardless. No, they won't turn into something they are not, because they are definitely still limited, but the midrange sounds far more natural like this. It makes them, at least, listenable.
    Give it a try if you have a pair of these laying around!
