AFAIK no hearing aids are much good at music reproduction so I’ve been experimenting with a graphic equaliser for serious music listening on headphones. My audiologist informed me my loss is pretty linear from above 500hz so I’ve been experimenting with boosted frequencies up to 6 Khz. No point in going beyond that as 6 khz is about the limit of hearing these days.:mad:
But I have found delving into graphic equalisers a bit puzzling as there is very little reviewing of them on the net and discussions are generally about their use for PA. not quality music listening. Most audio purists throw up their hands in horror at their use, something very silly as all sorts of gadgetry like this is used in making recordings in the first place.
There is varying praise for some of the Hi-fi units used in the 1980s and I have used a Pioneer from that era in a system here with some success. However I have drawn blanks on trying to discover any knowledgeable discussion on the many other units from that era. And I’m uncertain if some of these with limited controls are as effective as more modern 15 band or even 31 band graphic equalisers.
Anyone else experimented with graphic equalisers for serious music listening? And I’m wondering if a graphic equaliser and headphone might be better than ear hooks for TV viewing. More experimentation ahead!!
BTW last February (on advice from a poster here) I paid for an AUMEO personal equaliser for use with portable gear but it has not surfaced yet.
