    pc sound settings/equalizer settings

    does anyone tweak their equalizer or environment settings in any way that makes them feel advantaged or like they hear better?

    No. I have a Xonar DG sound card and once it was set up, I left it alone. Game playing, video watching, movies, etc, all use the same settings.
    Sometimes I wonder...
    "Why is that frisbee getting bigger?"
    Then it hits me.

    I use Steelseries Siberia headphones with a USB soundcard and use the following settings:

    30 hz: -20 dB
    60 hz: -20 dB
    120 hz: -20 dB
    250 hz: 0 dB
    500 hz: 0 dB
    1k: 20 dB
    2k: 0 dB
    4k: 0 dB
    8k: 20 dB
    16k: 0 dB

    I find bass very annoying so I have it turned down. 1k increases the sound of rail, and I think 8k increases the sound of lg, pickups, and keel footsteps. idk if it gives me an advantage, but I'm comfortable with the way it sounds.

    You can use a sound compressor if your soundcard has the effect.
    how it works : it compresses the dynamic range of the sound.
    what that means exactly : normally you have a wide range of sounds that you can barely hear to the highest/loudest sounds. so 1 being the lowest and 10 being the loudest. When you apply the compressor filter, you make the 1 feel like a 5 and the 10 like a 5 approximately. Simply put, the sounds are easier to hear if you are far from their source.
