    General Settings > Music > Equalizer

    That's an equalizer. Mess with it and find the best setting.

    It's a set of equalizer presets, not a real EQ. It works in a pinch, but it's no substitute for a real 3/5/10 band EQ. (You listening, Steve? A real EQ, man. It's long overdue. Get on it!)

    The best setting I've found that has the widest dynamic range (that is, good, deep bass and relatively crisp highs with a decent mid) is Hip Hop. I don't listen to that style of music, but it's great for anything with a lot of range -- dance, trance, electro, etc. It's not perfect, but it's better than the other presets, which all seem to lack one quality or another.

    if your headphones require you to use an eq to make them sound good you need new headphones.

    It ain't always about the headphones. Even the best reference monitors need a little help when pumping out pre-recorded tunes. EQ is helpful if you're recording from less than stellar sources (4-track, vinyl, etc.), ripping CDs where the sound engineer apparently hadn't yet discovered the wonders of a mastering EQ (I've had plenty), riping CDs where the sound engineer got way too freakin' happy with the mastering EQ (had some of those as well - friggin' Blank & Jones CD), commercial mix CDs culled from different sources where they just didn't bother doing any friggin' EQ at all resulting in a sorry mess of differently-EQed tracks (DJ Shah, meet The Equalizer. Equalizer, DJ Shah. And get the hell away from that reverb slider! You're going to hurt someone), or sometimes you just get some tracks ('specially older AAD recordings) that you wish had a rounder bottom or more crisp highs or a little more (or less) punch around the midrange.
