I use the dual xlr out of the dac and it is strong for the TC, plenty of power.
I am sensitive to treble, to shouty mids. I need to smooth these out a lot.
I’ve recently discovered a convolution filter that helps but it kills the mids too much, anyone know of any sites with many convolution filters to choose from?
Or any other settings in Roon I can do to tweak This. These are my favorite headphones and I chose them because of thr resolution and clarity, layering… But it ingeritsbly comes with a spicy treble.
Help me smooth these… I’m at a loss!
The threads got a lot of info as does the project on GitHub. A search on there will find some other tunings. Regarding your other questions, searching this forum and the knowledge base should answer a lot of them, or at least point you in the right direction. You’ll usually get an answer or two, if you ask on here, more depending on the subject.
I was also going to suggest that the 1266 TC may just not be the right headphone for you. They are great headphones but they are way too bright for me. Something like the Audeze LCD-3 is “darker” and smoother and doesn’t hurt my ears. If you want higher resolution, the LCD-4 offer that but are still smoother and darker sounding.
I will trade you my Beats Solo headphones for your Abyss. The mids on the Beats are pretty much not there because of over bloated bass. Should be more to your liking
HA! As others have said I’d use EQ for taming… but also… you may want to look into new headphones. What you’re describing could simply be a “coloring” that is exact opposite of what you’re looking for in a headphone. Just because a reviewer says its “the best” does not mean its the best for everyone. If you’re not enjoying the music there isn’t much point in how well something reviews.
sorry, looks like I spoke too soon. I am going through his EQ list right now and I don’t see anything for your headphones. Well, if you can’t find filters you like on AutoEQ, you can download the program and make your own. It is a little bit of work, but it is also pretty cool.
Here’s another set on the GH site but looking at the measurement graph I can’t help but echo @CrystalGipsy’s thoughts. If you don’t like high trebles you would be better starting with a different pair of headphones
