post #12741 of 37805
yeaaaah TUNEEES!

1. Sub bass -> mg7 and CKS77 will do it justice
2, 3 - mid-bass -> all of the earphones listed will do them justice, some more than others.
4 - mid + sub bass

I guess you're french? T'es francais? Je parle aussi francais biggrin.gif I got told off for using another language before so I won't say more tongue.gif

s.

Would it make you feel happy, for me to say
My pfe232's were after 50hrs, identically sounding. And I can guarantee you, that feeling wasn't the same, when I opened the second set up.
We are talking $600 earphones by the way.

Up to people to argue about burn-in. By the "methodology", as I know you are a man that relies on numbers - you could go to the inner fidelity graphs, and they will demonstrate that burn-in doesn't change the sound of headphones.
I however don't go based on facts and figures. I go based on personal experience, and to fully judge a audio product, I tend to give them time to burn-in (at least 30hrs) before making any sort of judgement on how they sound.
If my life was built up in facts and figures, my life would be very different - let's just put it that way (I'm not talking audio here)

Well yes I am French, but Ganja White Night isn't tongue.gif They just did a colab with a French artist hahaha.

I guess I'll look more into the MG7's and CKS77's..

And yeah the forum mods typically dislike other languages being used

Just be warned, the CKS77's take the piss on bass quantity and quality - by that I mean, they might "blow the bloody doors off".
MG7's if soundstage isn't much of a concern, then you'll fall quite quickly in love of their sub-bass.

Dumb question inc: When people are talking about equalizers in reviews for their cans, are people generally talking about software? Or do I have to actually go buy an amp with an equalizer or whatever?

People are talking about an equalizer:
http://pas-products.ab-archive.net/graphics/screenshots/graphic_equalizer_studio-20035.gif

This means, they are usually talking about adjusting the EQ via a software - in android for example - via PowerAmp.

Very rarely will you find reviewers actually using a real-life physical equaliser - especially one via an amp.

haha! You can google my review if you want to see my take on it smile.gif

Accessory Jacks is a great place to buy GENUINE earphones for a good price - when you can't find earphones that aren't available in your part of the world (mainly applies to us in the EU and UK)

Okay, just wanted to know whether I had to invest in any other hardware if I felt like my DT-990 Pros´ EQ would be off. Nice to know that it's just software smile.gif Does it degrade audio quality in any way to use a software equalizer?

Depends on your headphones (which in your case you'll be fine).
It doesn't degrade the music QUALITY at all - unless you go to extremes, and then it is usually your source that is screwing up the output.

As for audio - I highly suggest not using ANY EQ, to first JUDGE the headphones' capabilities and "natural" sound with your given source.
Then if you would like to REFINE your listening to fine tune to to your liking (like taking away a bit of bass or adding a bit of mids) - then use EQ to do that thumb.gif

Okay, thanks for the tips smile.gif Do you recommend any free EQ that I can download? I promise I won't use it before trying my headphones biggrin.gif I'm just anticipating that I might decrease the treble slightly
