best equalizer settings?

i searched the forum, but i did not found any detailed answer…

most people write, that you can get a better sound of the fuze by using the user definied equalizer - but which setting would have these effect? all settings i tried don’t work very fine - so i am still using “normal” right now…

thanks for your answers!

I have found that you should minimize how much you change the EQ settings…switch them only enough to compensate for any failings of the phones you use. If you’re using the stock buds, the EQ can’t help much, IMO. After I got my microsdhc, and my case and screen protector, which came a couple days later, the very next time I made it to a store I bought different headphones. It’s hard to get recommendations on 'phones though, because sound signature and preference is incredibly subjective. People like different sound balances, and also have different levels of hearing. So take any recs with a grain of salt

thanks for your reply (sorry for my german-english :slight_smile: )

maybe its useful to write which headphones i am using?

Sony MDR EX 52 LP

these are the old ones from my former iPod nano ^^

probably there is a better “standard-setting” existing which makes good results for the most users?

I can’t wear those little ones that go in your ear like that, so I really don’t know how they would sound. I know that I like a 'phone that lets you hear everything. Sometimes the bad ones have too much bass and you can’t hear the singer, or they have no bass and too much treble  that hurts your ears . These Sony’s you have been using…what do you think of the way they sound?

What you should remember is, even if everybody else says you could do a certain EQ setting to make “better” sound…it’s not about them…it’s about you. If you like the way it’s sounding on “normal”, then keep going with that. If you don’t like it, then experiment with it, just a little bit at a time.It’s your player, your headphones, and it only has to sound good for you

i think they are more bass-optimized…

maybe its an effect of the in-ear-design - i don’t know!

you are absolutly right - in your posting “your player…”

but IF there is a easy way to check out what others find out - i would try it :wink:

I think it is…when I briefly tried one that’s what I thought. Try the “Jazz” setting…that might even them out a little.

There was a discussion about this in the Clip board…and since the Clip and Fuze both sound the same, maybe reading it would give you some ideas. You’ll see what I mean, people have wildly different opinions. Just click down below :smiley:

We had a similar discussion not too long ago in the fuze forum as well…

There is some useful viewpoints in that thread.  Here is a link to that thread:

Edit:

If your are truly serious about equalization, you really can’t rely on the on-board EQ in the fuze.  It is great for what it is, but it is no replacement for a serious equalizer.  If I want to do some serious listening with my fuze, I fire up some FLACs and process them through a 70’s vintage Soundcraftsmen 1/3 octave equalizer.
