Hey guys, i was wondering if this equalizer setting is good for dubstep songs :rockout:and probably every type of song:rolleyes:
my headphones are the g35 on USb3.0 if that makes a difference from 2.0 if anyone wants to say something

Really it's a personal choice. Whatever sounds good to you is what works.

The headset is USB 2.0 and can't take advantage of the extra bandwidth a USB 3.0 port provides.

Assuming that the only issue your headphones have with reproducing the music as you want it EQ is a decent option. EQing is generally a much better option than buying DAC and amps that color the music in a certain way in the sense that it is much more controllable and allows you to run better engineered less overpriced gear.

EQ and soundlevels can cause clipping, but on Windows Vista and forward the mixing is done in 32 bit which also means you can use Windows volume control to turn down the music without affecting the sound quality to some extent (on Win Xp the volume control had to be fixed at 100% to ensure good sound quality).
