Best EQ settings with Titanium HD for a metal listener?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
With my Titanium HD and my Ultrasone Pro 550's I am currently using the EQ settings below, which I customized and saved as a new profile. Now I am asking, is there anything I should change at all to get better sound? Right now I am just messing with the higher frequencies a little bit.

Powertoolbrand, that EQ is ridiculous in a number of ways, unless you have some very mid-centric headphones. Your music will clip and that isn't a good thing.

EQ exists for you to compensate for your equipment. Basically not all audio equipment has a flat frequency response curve, in fact most don't really reach that goal. Now lets say for example that your speakers have a spike in their frequency response curve around 4K. That means in relation to the other frequencies your speakers are going to reproduce sounds that are around 4K out of proportion(louder) to the other frequencies they are reproducing. In that case you may lower the 4K level to compensate.

EQ exists to flatten out frequency curves, or if you so desire you could add some more oomph to the lower frequencies if you are a bass head, or take some of the low end out if you are listening at night and don't want to wake your significant other. To just go and willy-nilly start wildly adjusting the EQ without understanding how or why is in most cases just going to degrade the way your music sounds. In fact if you have decent equipment you are probably taking a reasonably flat freq. response curve and setting it all out of whack.
