Well, you obviously have an ipod. Why don't you just try them all out and pick the one you like best?

Hey Guys,
I know im a noob but i got a new email so i made a new account anyway.
i was messing around with this because i wanted to mess with my Eq and i listen to Deathmetal,Heavy,grind,Deathcore etc. anyway idk about power metal honestly i hate Power but. i was trying forever to find a good setting on the net but i couldn't so i said ill make a good one. i was also listening with Ipod Headphones i got out of my ipod touch case.i tested it on a few songs that i like. this setting is if you like an epic boom-y type bass. no so much foucsed on treble but ill make one for treble if its requested. also if you listen to techno with this some songs are good, but lots like to Crackle and pop and what not.
but..
check this,

some songs i was listening to with the setting.

Arsonists get all the girls - Shoeshine for neptune.
Bring me the horizion - Chelsea smile.
Kataklysm - Taking the world by storm.
Job for a cowboy - entombment for a machine.
The legion of doom - Lolitas medicine.
Suffokate - the skies where filled with fire.

tell me how it sounds Cheers LA,

I like keeping it flat, so I can hear how well the song was mixed in the first place.
#17
I like lots of bass

On my TV bass is 100 and treble is 30

The only time I use EQ is when wheening myself onto new headphones.

"Techno" EQ is very bassy. It makes the sound too fuzzy though. The "Jazz" EQ would be my next favourite.

I like that setting, but I don't have deathcore.

Im using this one now

Well, I toyed a little and a got this:
+2,5
+3
+1,5
+1
-1,5
+2
+1
+2,5
+3,5
+3
(from left to right, count lines)
Based on Rhapsody (Dawn of victory), so it should work. It does have some bugs, because I am only 16 and this is my second EQ, try to fix it, if you have time.
Hope that helped.
P.S. How do you like the new album?

This, usually, but if you're listening to really compressed music with it, using the EQ can raise some frequencies to make it sound less compressed.

Dude, this entirely changed my metal experience, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

I always use Electronic, and slightly turn up the lower end and the higher end. I move the preamp up half a notch and keep my itunes volume just a bit lower than max and I love it. I don't have expensive ass speakers, but it gets the job done for when I want to blast I, The Breather or some A Call To Sincerity.

Wow. What a necro bump dude
