EQ setting guide for AirPods Pro
Here we have the measured frequency response of the AirPods pro (yellow), and the curve that is considered to be ideal by most people (blue).
So what can do here is try to find the difference between these curves, and put in a reverse EQ that will make it match the ideal a little better. Obviously it’s not gonna make it ideal, just look at that high end you probably can’t find a EQ with enough bands to account for that. However this should in theory improve the subjective experiences a little for most people.
Just to give you an example, look on the graph at the 100hz position, the ideal curve is about 3~4db higher, so if your EQ has a band for 100hz, you would turn it up at 3db.
Holy shit I just dialled it in myself and I think the difference is unmistakably better.
To give you an idea, with the position of bands I have on my EQ:
There’s no Y scale on this piece of shit so I had to just guess it, I’m assuming maxed out is +-20db here.
