Other threads have sprouted up over the past two years here (and also in iAudiophile.net) dealing with BBE/EQ settings.

But you really have expect that everybody's ears are different, and unless you're using the same headphones as the other user it's virtually impossible that their setup can work for you.

As far as MDWright1032 goes, it sounded great with my old Sony CD950 headphones, which as it turns out are not that great so the treble boost from this EQ setup really really helped and made it sound good.

But when I bought a REALLY good pair of Shure SRH-940 headphones, I simply couldn't listen to MDWright1032 anymore. Much too bright and harsh. Same ears, same person, same BBE/EQ... but different headphones.

So I had to tone it down. I've now adopted the following "near flat" BBE/EQ setup which is nothing at all like MDWright1032. It's "near flat", to correspond to the excellent SRH-940 headphones:

================================================

EQ:
---------------------
WIDE 135HZ: 3
NORMAL 385: 0
NORMAL 650HZ: 1
NORMAL 2.4KHZ: 2
WIDE 13KHZ: 3

BBE+:
-----------------------
BBE: 8
MACH3BASS: 3
3D SURROUND: OFF
MP ENHANCE: OFF

SE:
--------------------------
STEREO ENHANCE: OFF
REVERB: OFF

========================================
