It's a project that uses EQ presets within the app to simulate the sound signature from 200+ headphone models and "noise cancellation" from 20+ headphone models. I wanted to correctly replicate the sound signature and noise isolation graphs from a site called In-Ear Fidelity, or Crinacle (great site by the way, the FR graphs are pretty accurate), and the noise isolation graphs from RTINGS.com (also a great site). I also used Wavelet, which has a feature called AutoEQ (compensates headphones to the Harman target, without it replicating was not possible). I also replicate sound signatures from its AutoEQ. If you want to learn more, click on the website link: https://headphonesounddemo.wixsite.com/home If you don't want to bother visiting the website, here are the EQ settings in Wavelet (The reason for this is that RTINGS.com uses a different target curve. So I tailored based on that): Headphone presets from Wavelet or In-Ear Fidelity don't need EQ settings from Wavelet (not needed because Crinacle's graph tool has Harman as one of the preference targets and AutoEQ uses Harman). If Wavelet is not working properly when MusicFX is activated, enable Legacy Mode. Then, download the presets down below (after downloading, go to Poweramp, then EQ, then press and hold any preset and import it). Wavelet: Release I (31 presets): Release I.json Release II (38 presets): Release II.json Release III (45 presets): Release III.json Release IV (52 presets): Release IV.json Release II improves the 1MORE Triple Driver preset (replace said preset by deleting the one without "(2)" on front and rename without the number. If Release II is downloaded first, delete the one with "(2)") and adds ANC on/off presets for Anker Soundcore Life Q30 (just delete the Life Q30 preset) Release III improves the Samson SR850 (follow the same procedure as with prior release) Release IV improves the Anker Soundcore Life Q30 (ANC On) (follow the same procedure) and the Skullcandy Crusher Evo (previously named "Sennheiser Crusher Evo" in Release III file, if Release IV is downloaded, delete it) Update I will have all four releases combined, hence 162 presets. It also updates 30 existent presets Update I (162 presets): update-i.Poweramp-settings Update II updates 4 presets and adds 44 Update II (206 presets): update-ii.Poweramp-settings In-Ear Fidelity: Release I (30 presets): Release-I.json Release II (11 presets): Release-II.json RTINGS.com: Release 1 (27 presets): PresetsV1.json Release 2 (30 presets): PresetsV2.json Release 3 (43 presets): PresetsV3.json With the "NC" presets, it's ideal to apply the EQ presets in recorded noisy environments in binaural audio, which you can download on the https://bit.ly/3GA0QvR link or feel free to download related to the four environments (busy traffic, subway, coffee shop and airplane cabin) on the https://www.acethinker.com/url-to-mp3 link. Make sure to set the volume to a realistic level before applying the EQ presets to have a better idea of how different headphones will perform on said environments. Release 1 "NC" (29 presets): Release I (NC).json When downloaded, you notice that each headphone preset has an acronym at the beginning. They mean: B: Bone conduction C.: Closed-back H: Hybrid E: Earbuds I: In-ear O: Open-back S: Semi-open For the "NC" presets, they mean: PNC: Passive Noise Cancellation ANC: Active Noise Cancellation Disclaimer Note that the simulation of sound signature and noise cancelling will not be 100% accurate, as we do not all perceive sound in the same way, and won't reflect actual noise cancelling performances. Factors such as ear shape, fit, seal, total harmonic distortion, age and headphone design indicate that you will not get the same experience that the real counterpart will deliver (one preset simulates a bone conduction headphone, which is completely different because they vibrate without drivers). The FR graphs were replicated by eye only with Wavelet presets, which leads to some inaccurate matchings. I will continue to add more presets in the near future. Any opinions and suggestions will be welcome.

Hi, I have been having issues with bass performance on my Asus Zenfone 6! I used to own a Samsung Galaxy s5, i could crank up bass boost all the way to 100% unless i went above 60% volume. The bass was super deep, its DAC support 192khz and 32-bit My Zenfone 6 also support high res 192khz at 32 bits, however even the slightest bit of bass boost causes DVC to go mad, turning DVC off it causes massive distortions at low bass boost of 30% no matter how low i put my volume. (Both devices use default audio settings and both devices have AudioFX or any sort system wide audiowizard disabled as well as me using the exact same pair of wired headphones for them) Its very frustrating, i cant seem to tune it to its full potential. I have tried literally anything the tweaking offer. What i find strange about the Zenfone, is no matter how low the volume, it cant handle bass boost at all, making the audio very flat. Both devices use the exact same settings and equaliser preset etc etc. My old S5 only get trouble at 100% bass boost around 60% volume, my Zenfone cant even handle 30% at 5% volume. Does this mean Asus went for an absolute trash DAC? or does it mean i need to apply different tweak. Some other music players seem to have more bass potential however nothing close to what im used to from my old phone. I hope anyone can be of help with this ❤
EDIT: Problem solved 🙌 (check out answer below) I got bluetooth headphones almost two years ago and Poweramp eight years ago, and have had no problem with using the headphones with the app before. But a couple of weeks (maybe a month) ago, it started to not work properly. The sound and everything else works great, but if I pause Poweramp using the play/pause button on the headphones, I can’t start it up again with the button. Poweramp now also disappears from the lock screen when I pause, so I then have to unlock the screen, and open up Poweramp to start again where I paused. I can pause and un-pause using the headphone button when I use my podcast app, so the problem doesn’t seem to be universal for the headphones. If I un-pause right after having paused, there’s no problem and the music starts right back up again. But even a 10 second pause is enough for me to not be able to un-pause. There is no problem if the screen is unlocked, I’ve tried pausing and waiting a full five minutes before I un-pause, and it starts right back up. I’ve tried “forgetting” the headphones and re-pairing them to the phone, I’ve tried rebooting the phone, I’ve tried un-checking the “react to buttons” headphone setting in Poweramp and re-checking it (after a reboot), but none of it has made any difference. The problem might have started when I updated the Android version on my phone, but I’m not sure. It’s the only change I have made to headphones, phone or app in a while, but it might be a coincidence since I’m not definitely sure if the problems started right when I updated Poweramp build number -- v3-build-882-arm64-play [882004-437be2ab] Device model -- OnePlus 6T Android version -- 10.3.5
