“Perfect” iTunes EQ Setting Revised

A revised version of of the [Merlin Mann][merlin] / [Mac OS X Hints][hint] classic:

I’ve changed the layout so that the highest setting sits on 0, instead of boosting frequencies. This leads to a more even sound and less distortion of the high end. Everyone’s ears a little different, so your mileage may vary. Experimentation is encouraged.

Of course, what you’re listening through will make a difference. I heartily recommend [these over-the-ear cans from Audio-Technica][link], or if you’re looking to spend under $50, I don’t think you can do better than [the Sennheiser HD-202s][senn]. If you buy either of them from that link, I get a small kickback.
