A 'perfect' iTunes equalizer setting
Authored by: verdon on Sep 02, '04 11:52:19AM

This sort of stuff really depends on the speakers (or in a hall situation, the room). I used to use the built-in small speakers settings when just using the speakers in my Powerbook. Last week I bought some Bose powered speakers and my sound is now definately most natural and best (by a long shot) when the EQ is shut off all together. In the end, sound is like colour, no two people experience it exactly the same.

This is totally dependent on speaker frequency response, listening room characteristics, etc. While one can't fault someone for finding a setting that they like (that one really should be normalized so that the average boost is 0 by subtracting a few from each gain) there is no "one size fits all" setting that makes your sound "perfect"

That has to be the most esoteric analogy I've ever read.

Actually... to compare sounds and colors has nothing esoteric. Both values are represented in values of wavelenght and are interpreted by our organs (eyes an ears) that can be damaged in some degree and relay the information to our brain for a final processing. Both, color and sound, can be altered by the environment they are in or "surrounding" them. That doesn't even cover the more subjective things like the differences that exist in everyone tastes.

Just my humble opinion tho...
