What setting would suggestion would you say I need base from the component I have, VLC have better sound but before Install APO I use to have rich & deep sound sound.
I can post any other information you might need, Thank you for helping me out to gain the best sound from from foobar2000...
since I plan to use same setting to Android note 4, because I could attach Fiio E17K DAC. But first I would like to focus on windows

Defaults unless you're trying to EQ your headphones/speakers.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say...   If you like it without EQ, don't use EQ.   And, the EQ shouldn't do anything when set to flat, so it depends on how you set it.

In a perfect world you wouldn't need EQ, and those headphones have a very good reputation so I'm sure plenty of people listen to them without EQ.    If you want more bass you can boost the bass with EQ.

There's one thing to watch out for...   When you boost anything you can potentially go over 0dB and clip (distort) the audio.   So, if you boost with EQ you generally need to reduce the digital volume.   Then, it's OK to crank-up the analog volume as long as you don't clip your amplifier.   

The VLC volume control also goes over 100%, so be careful with it too.
