Hi there!
 
I've been reading and visiting the Head-Fi forums for ages now, but I decided that it was time for me to finally join the forums! :)
 
So, I just got the Sony NWZ-A845 Walkman and I would like to ask you if you could recommend EQ, VPT, DSEE, Clear Stereo and Dynamic Normalizer settings since I'm having a difficult time finding the perfect settings. If it's worth mentioning, I use the Ultimate Ears 700 with the Walkman.
 
Thanks in advance!

P.S - I'm from Sweden, so I would like to apologize if my english isn't proper, hard to understand, misspelled, and so on.

I use none of the aforementioned 'enhancements'. Just enjoy the sound as it is without altering it.

If I recall this model has 2 custom memory spots which is great for setting one for IEMs and the other for full size cans. I don't use the one button enhancments but do set the eq to what I like.....just play around with the custom eq till you get what you like.Not all recordings follow the same formula so they will sound different.

This is the way I have my Walkman (728) set up:
 
 
Clear Stereo, Dynamic Equalizer, DSEE, EQ: Yes
VPT: No
 
EQ: Clear Bass (2); everything else in a "V-shaped" arrangement.
 
Sometimes VPT (Matrix setting) is very useful, especially when I am playing a podcast or downloaded radio interview.

Thanks for your answers! I really appreciate it, and they were extremely helpful! Now I have two "perfect" settings that I use. One with a flat EQ, all audio enhancements off, and Clear Bass on 3, and one similar to JCS's. :)
 
They both sound amazing with my UE 700's depending on what kind of music i listen to, so thanks alot for the tips! :)

"Perfect" in for your ear to decide -- experiment.
