Here is the Google translation to English from the Cyrillic for that:

Richard - I just ordered that Volume 3 of Linear Audio with your headphone eq article. Should be some good reading!

I am curious to know if you try the EQ the way I did, if you find it was an improvment for you. It was for me and so added it to the headphone article.

Richard, thank you so much for your suggestion about the MLS software. I would love to make the comparisons.

I am using Linux Ubuntu. I was not able to get it into my computer last week. The MLS seems to be for MS Windows. I could try to run it under Wine, but do not have the time to fool around with it.

I am in Canada visiting family for a couple of weeks. When I get back to the UK, I will be very busy renovating a new house we recently moved into. I will not have much time for audio till I get the renovations done.

Another option is a hardware solution http://www.smyth-research.com/products.html

Probably the best option on this market. Relatively expesive though.

Default Start out flat freq and then adjust from that base -

Auditory environment
Only if you wanted to recreate the sound As If you were listening to speakers in a room with your two ears. But with headphones, you are not doing that, of course. Recordings made just for headphone playback or optimized for headphone listening are done more and more often now and that requires a flat response. So, the answer is -- it all depends. But in most cases reducing unwanted peaks and valley's in the response still ends up as better sounding on average - over all. Then, if you want, adjust/compensate for affect as you feel is best or more accurate.

Thx-RNMarsh

I read a little about that -- thx for the web location... Seems interesting to me and would hope Ver 2.0 and beyond get developed... eventually in a smaler package .. maybe even portable or into an IC. takes time but should be encouraged, IMO.

Thx-RNMarsh
