View Full Version : Settings for new D2+ and Klipsch S4?
Hi, I am a new owner of a D2+ and also a pair of Klipsch S4. So far I am decently satisfy with the sound quality with my Cowon D2+ but it is still not as nice as when I plug my klipsch S4 to my Sondigo Inferno 7.1 sound card on my computer, the output from the D2+ FW 2.11 just seems a little too muddy and have been playing around with the EQ. I tried using FW version 2.10 and it seemed to have clear up a bit of the muddiness, but was wondering if people with the D2+ and the same head phones as me would share their settings so I can try them out and then start playing more around with the EQ and jeteffects to cater it to my own taste. For now I've compared the D2+ with FW version 2.10 and 2.11 and it seems like with jeteffects off, and EQ being flat, version 2.10 seem to have a sound signiture closer to what I like, but I just want to play around with some settings with 2.11 as well if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks! I know that once I find the correct setting, I will really love this player.
Thanks in advance
As a D2+ newbie I can understand you're a bit lost with the settings...as was I.
I do not have the same head phones, but I read a very helpful tip here...don't turn the EQ up, but down. (even if you want to keep the EQ settings flat)
Stay under 0 db and turn up the volume a bit.
It cleared the sound instantly (to my taste at least)
And well...the best settings are personal, so play around a bit more I would say;)
with the Klipsch S4, trying to get the sound to as close to what I like as possible.. still tweaking but here is what i have right now that is fine for most general listneing with the Klipsch S4, mostly just clearing out some muddiness I get with the IEM mostly probably cause of the IEM design of the headphones, becuase I have no problems with my senheisser HD555, but for the S4, these are the settings I am using right now
80Hz - -2
850Hz - +1
3.2KHz - +1
11.7kHz - +2
and none of the special effects, I find that this is best balance I can get right now without makign the sound too artificial and also clearing out muddiness and still have decent amount of bass.
