when i borrowed ath m50x from my friend , i thought it was great at first try. i liked its kinda v shaped sound. after 2-3 days listening at stretch i found some issues. they are-
1) bass is enough but not good enough bcz sometimes its too boomy for specific song.
2) mid is too weak. though i didnt listen to hd 600 but i compared curve .i found lacking there too.
3) sometimes treble too sparkly for ear and you feel pain to listen song bcz of it.
4) after long time listening song(any song) becomes fatigue/tiring to me . then i stop listening
my music preferance : rock metal guitar solo techno epic rap edm
how did i fix:
1)i use foober for mp3 and flac player
2)dowloaded eq apo.
3)used default eq(flat) for my audio settings like realtec , foober eq. made sure that no eq/sound effect except eq apo is effective.
*4)in eq apo i used 8 peaking filter (parametric)
*freq :30 hz gain :+3 db q:1.41
*freq :333 hz gain :+3.4 db q: 0.7
*freq :6100 hz gain :+4.8 db q:1.41
*freq :9000 hz gain :-2.2 db q:11.1
*freq :2000 hz gain :-5 db q:12.3
*freq :125 hz gain :-2 db q:7.3
*freq :75 hz gain :+2.5 db q:4.5
*freq :10500 hz gain :+3.4 db q:max
- if u wanna hear bass a bit loud freq :50 hz gain :2 db q:1.41
*if treble is still too extreme (bongiovi makes headphone sound like clear and trebly) freq :20000 hz gain :-2 db q:1.41
*i made a mistake it wil be 13500 instead of 10500
i think i can still tweak few things for more epic sound(specially in treble area. i was too lazy to tweak it more efficiently).will edit later.
*5) after setting this sound may stiill seem not enough bright (though i think its good enough for some song) i used bongiovi dps to make it brighter. bongiovi dps i chose senn hd 570/apple earpod headphone. all other settings are default.stereo-off . when you think its too bright you may close application(turn off doesnt work good).
conclusion : after doing these my mid is so fucking good right now . bass is also very good not boomy at all. treble is sparky very rarely(depends on song) .and not fatigued at all. i listened same song for 10-20 times still my ears not tired. i listened all genre of music given above its fucking awesome for everyone of them right now .
dont think i tweaked these eq apo settings randomly tho. if you like my settings too i may tell you how i did it so you also can tweak yourself . inform me if you apply my setting and have any problem. make sure just eq apo filters,bongiovi dps sen hd 570 is just active.make sure everything else is off.also you can change headphone in bongiovi dps as your preference.
i forgot to say how awesome bongiovi dps app is. it makes cheap headphone sound really good and brighter.though its not free software you can download it for free in torrent . this app is really worth it. if you dont believe me just dowload jetaudio from playstore in mobile and check it out which is integrated with jetaudio player.
also i am using no amp. just raw headphone.
edit :i like electric guitar sound a lot. this eq with dps setting(i stated above) makes guitar solo extremely good. chcked gnr songs, buckethead, satriani. bt if you wanna hear dubstep you can increase bass a bit(i stated above). for some songs its better without bongiovi. but i highly recommend it bcz to me sound is still not brighter in mid -treble section .and i can guarantee that with this eq setting , you can get good mid if you think m50x lacks mid clarity(it actually does watch metal 571 review in youtube).if you think you dont lack mid with this headphone i suggest dont follow this setting .vocal and guitar sound becomes more sweet.also you can still get very good sound from this cans before you throw it out just check this out.i am just listening to same track 30 times still it doesnt feel boring that means something.
edit : those who dont have bongiovi dps. dont use freq: 333 hz filter .but i like my bongiovi dps so much so i like having that filter.my experimentation is coming to end very soon.dps makes my v curve more refined and brighter.tell me whats your result plz . have nice day
