"S" / "Sh" sound too sharp or loud

Recommended Posts

When I hear certain song that has a strong "s" or "sh" in lyrics, often times the sound is very loud or sharp that a long duration hearing could hurt my ears.

This could be due to poor audio quality, but is there a setting I can tweak to reduce this sound?

You could try reducing the gain in the higher frequencies in the EQ.

Yes, as @andrewilley said you could decrease the eq around 8 KHz.

Do you use headphones ? There are headphones that further increase this frequency, e.g. the Beyerdynamic DT 880.

I use cheap headset, but it usually good enough for me since I'm not that much of an audiophile.

"decrease the eq around 8 KHz."

forgive me if this is a noob question, but which slider in EQ is the 8KHz one? I see 31 till 16K, is it the 8K one?

Erm, it's the one with 8K underneath it, immediately to the left of the one with 16K underneath.
