  1. Thank you all. I've taken away that digital apps can't break the headphones with EQ, however, if I boost my AMP to 100%, which is not necessary, my drivers could damage themselves. I see what you mean with the Bass evening out with the rest of the music - which I enjoy, but i also like some louder bass too. Something I can feel. Thanks for the help! I love learning about new topics. I feel I'm pretty well versed in PC hardware, but I like learning about audio now
  2. I meant I didn't think it was broken, because it sounded fine and was wondering if I should listen for anything specific to tell if it's broken.
  3. at normal volume it sounds fine. Any tips on what I should listen for?
  4. keyword: nearly. No damage done I learned a lesson
  5. lol thanks. in that case ignore my questions about how to do it. still tho... how come so many people have guides on boosting bass like the first thing?
  6. Aight. I see what you're saying. Ok, lets try to imagine I'm not an audio professional and I just follow guides from the internet. Thanks for your help. Imma link some images. I think I understand what you were saying. The V is a no, the Decreasing one is a yes? And how about the eq I got from that huge headphone eq reddit thread?
  7. Yeah, I wasn't sure if i could break anything like that. Thanks. I always have Window to 100% just for ease of only my amp knob changing stuff. I'll check for hairs. By the way, do you really think bass eq's are that bad? It's just Peace Eq's default bass boost setting.
  8. I've had these DT 770's for about 2 months now after some incredible suggestions. I love em. They sound great, look great, and work well. But, I noticed that during some bass heavy songs - or when I bass boost with EQ - My (primarily) right driver rattled. It seems like it went away under regular use with a little blowing in the earcup. I tested the bass and my AMP with https://www.szynalski.com/tone-generator/ and https://www.audiocheck.net/soundtests_headphones.php. At normal (100% windows, 50% amp) levels I don't get an issue but as I increase the volume on my amp (closer to 100% windows, 75% to 100% on my amp) I hear crazy distortion and rattling. I assume that's normal and that my amp just can't power my 250 OHM's that high. It's the FX Audio DAC-X6. I have no issue with distortion at those levels since I'll never need it that high, but I want to know if this is normal and ok for my setup or if it's dangerous. If I continue to experience rattling, is there anything I can do besides RMAing them? Thanks a ton for any help or input I hope this can help other people with this issue.
  9. Idk if this is a dead topic yet, but I just saw this. I'm using an external DAC, so not internal. However, it seems like you don't have to "configure" your device as 7.1. I dropped the VAC because I wanted to see the difference and there is little to none. However, I will try wasapi. I used the Kernel Streaming because there was less latency. Edit: wasapi is installed by default and idk how it'd affect anything.
  10. So I'm using Equalizer APO for control, Peace EQ for simple EQ changes, HeSuvi for 7.1 sound, and a Virtual audio cable. To link HeSuvi and my VAC, I'm using Audio Repeater KS. Every minute or two, I'll hear a crackling sound. I've set Peace to prevent audio clipping, but that doesn't seem to work. Obviously, these are a lot of programs all altering the same audio, but there shouldn't be much room for error. We can rule out Equalizer APO and Peace since I've used those with no errors at all. I read on a forum that with my configuration (Which is recommended by the HeSuvi dev as a work around for his software) will cause some crackling, and that the commentor didn't know why. I'm wondering if anyone else does, since it didn't seem like he looked for an answer. The main area I think might be changeable is the Audio repeater, since it changes audio buffering, output, input, and more. Thanks for any help you can offer. There is little to no info on HeSuvi around the net, so any input is helpful.
  11. I never got help with this I don't think... I totally forget what I did to help it. I barely remember the situation in general. All I know is it doesn't happen anymore. Make sure everything is updated I guess ?
  12. Thx all. Fyi, I literally saw the option to set it higher than it is now. I saw 32 bits @ 96000k. I even had it set like that for a bit, but it changed randomly, or after I installed other audio drivers. So even if it is snake-oil or just for advertisement, I was curious why the option went away. No biggie. All good info, thank you.
  13. When I first plugged in my dac, I was able to set the audio to like 32bit, 96000Hz. Now, after installing some Realtek Drivers from my motherboard manufacturer's website, it only goes as far as 24bit. I'd kinda like the 32bit back, even though I probably couldn't hear a difference. But more so, I want to know why this happened. I'm very curious since I don't see how Realtek drivers could affect something they aren't driving. DAC: FX-audio X6
  14. for the short duration I used hesuvi, my sound was really muffled. It seems like a lot of people say it works well, though, so should I try again? maybe I had something wrong. Would it be worth a shot?
