Pump up the tre­ble

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

To com­pen­sate for hear­ing dam­age, I need to boost the tre­ble in the left chan­nel when lis­ten­ing over head­phones. Do you know of a way to do this? Gareth Gilks The Equal­izer in iTunes is fairly sim­ple, and third-party apps that ex­tend to all sys­tem au­dio ap­ply the same EQ set­tings to both stereo chan­nels. Very high-end soft­ware might en­able this, but I think you’re bet­ter off with a hard­ware graphic equaliser. I’m not enough of an au­dio­phile to rec­om­mend mod­els, but a 15-band stereo graphic equaliser is around £75. Not cheap and the units are rel­a­tively bulky, but it’s re­ally no more than de­cent head­phones, and might be a worth­while in­vest­ment in your case.

Boom 2 is an in­ex­pen­sive equaliser, but it can’t ad­just left and right chan­nels in­de­pen­dently.
