Equalizer Settings | Bose Soundsport Wired

Update: I added a new version, which in my opinion is much better than the first one I shared on this post. I'm keeping the first one for historical purposes, but I don't use it anymore.

Got a new PC at work some time ago. That means I lost all the EQ settings that I used with the Creative SoundBlaster E1 external amp/sound card. Thankfully I still have the EQ settings for my Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones here. But I lost the ones for my Bose Soundsport Wired earphones. Just another reminder to save your stuff to devices/locations that you control.

Anyway, I had to start from scratch with my Bose Soundsport Wired earphones. These earphones are bright sounding earphones. They don't have that much bass to begin with. This is where an external amp/sound card with EQ settings can come in handy. Using the built-in “Rock” preset from Creative, I modified it to add more bass. The result was surprisingly good. This setting sounds even better than any of the previous EQ settings that I've made for my Bose Soundsport Wired earphones. There is now enough bass — more than enough for these earphones — but with minimal degradation to the mids and highs.

Equalizer settings for Bose Soundsport wired earphones.

31Hz = 24db 11Hz = 18dB 125Hz = 10dB 250Hz = 2dB 500Hz = -1dB 1KHz = -1dB 2KHz = 0dB 4KHz = 0dB 8KHz = 4dB 16KHz = 4dB Level = 0dB


Update: As I listened to more songs today, I fine tuned the EQ settings and came up with this new version. This one features less bass, which results in less muddy mids and highs. There's still enough bass to enjoy listening to music though. It also works better with a lot more songs than the first version I had.
