I have been using Roon for a while and I love it. This is also why I bought the lifetime subscription.
My primary headphones are the Sennheiser HD800s and the Parametric EQ really upgraded my listening experience to a whole new level.
Until now I have been using Oratory’s Parametric EQ profile but yesterday I found a website containing 4 different profiles:
Did anyone else (using HD800S) test out all these 4 profiles?
I guess I will also have to test them out but I was curious if anyone else tried them.
Another question: I saw that I have 2 options for Roon: first option would be to create a Parametric EQ manually and use the data provided or the 2nd option would be to use the 2 included .wav files for convolution filters.
Is there any difference between these 2 options? I guess the end result should be the same…correct?
AutoEq uses the picture in the pdf from your post to know the frequency response of the headphone. It then calculates it’s own set of filters.
The filters from Oratory are probably calculated with different software and adjusted by hand/ear.
I haven’t tried those EQ profiles yet, I just start looking at the EQ feature, below is my first try, it seems to work very well with my Sennheiser HD800S /Monolith desktop amp/dac and make the music a little bit easy to listern, before without the EQ, it was a little bit rough:
Maybe, is a silly question but it’s my first time trying to equalize an headphone, so it is a little confusing.
Finally in two weeks I will receive a HD800s (do you have them?) if so, can you share a screenshot of your EQ?
