QuoteAs I know, this can not be do it with an equalizer.An equalizer is about the best you can do. If there is actual ringing or reverb there's nothing you can do about that, but most resonances can be tamed with EQ. The "sound quality" of headphones is 99 percent frequency response. Distortion isn't usually an issue (depending on how loud you are listening) and things like "transient response" and "detail" are closely related to frequency response. A lot of people think it's more complicated than that, but if you think about the 4 parameters identified by Ethan Winer, you'll realize that the other 3 don't really apply and it mostly comes down to frequency response.You'd have to know the resonant frequencies for the particular headphone, then you can use an equalizer to knock-down those frequencies. If you can't find a frequency response curve for your headphones, you can just experiment with a graphic equalizer pulling-down one frequency-band at a time to see what helps. Or, if you have a parametric equalizer, you sweep a notch filter... Or sometimes it's better to sweep a band-boost filter to see what frequencies are being excited/exaggerated, and then apply a band-cut to fix the problem.QuoteI am not an expert, but my theory is that in a closed one, there is certain amount of sound that "bounce" inside the cup,I know what you mean, but a good closed headphone won't sound like that. I generally prefer open headphones too, but I have a pair of Sennheiser HD280's. I don't use them very often and sometimes I think they are going to have that "closed resonance" sound, but when I listen to them they actually sound fairly neutral/natural. (They are not the "best" closed headphones, but they are often considered "one of the best for the money".) What you are hearing is NOT actually the sound "bouncing around"... I think it's the plastic resonating. A 1-inch wavelength is about 15kHz, and I'm sure you are not hearing ringing/resonating at such high frequencies.
A problem with foobar equalizer I have found is that when I move any equalizer band, it does not respond after 4 to 6 seconds, with it is quite annoyed because I dont hear inmediate changes.
There is heaps of DSP plug-ins you can try. You may not find any whose description matches exactly your problem but I suggest you try as many out as you can. One of them might provide the outcome you are looking for. http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=31899http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=38291http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?ti...:Components#DSP
