Yeah, hey everybody.
I recently bought a moderately good set of headphones with a low, low price at a local hardware store. While I wasn't quite 100% happy with the sound initially, a friend let me borrow his incredibly good-sounding Sennheisers as a method for direct comparison.
An idea struck me then and there. "What if - what if I use my friend's set as a basis in terms of sound and use the built-in EQ function on my MP3 to modulate the quality of my own cheap-ass set to imitate his?"
Well, turns out this approach worked. The new-found sound turned out to be damn close to that of the expensive Sennheisers, almost - almost - exactly the same.
So here's a question - would it be possibly, and advisable, to set the same EQ parameters on tracks I produce on the computer temporarily as to imitate the listening experience of those INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE studio headphones before rendering the song? Or is there still a huge, important difference here that I should be aware of?
