Poweramp autoeq target

Good day!

Some time ago, I bought a HiFiMan he400se. I used it only for games for a few days, but then I decided to listen to music. The sound seemed flat to me, and the bass was very lacking. In the Poweramp eq application, I decided to look for presets for these headphones, turned on the one in the screenshot, and just fell in love. I haven't taken off my headphones for several days now. But I can't figure out where this preset came from. Is this a preset from some kind of database? Or is there some kind of target FR that the app is targeting? I tried all the targets on autoeq.app, but I still didn't get the same settings as in the app. I would really like to understand which target FR I liked so much.

The device presets list comes from the crowd-sourced AutoEQ database.

Thank you! But still, I can't find out its logic.

Here is parametric eq settings for he400se: https://github.com/jaakkopasanen/AutoEq/tree/master/results/crinacle/GRAS 43AG-7 over-ear/HIFIMAN HE400se

It's completely the same with the one from Poweramp app. There is screenshot, and on this screenshot target fr is harman over-ear 2018. But with autoeq.app site I still can't recreate those eq setting.

As is the way with crowd-sourcing, there's more than one submitted entry for any given device. There are seven for HIFMAN HE400se as far as I can see. The default one which pops up from the Results list is "Oratory1990 over-ear", https://github.com/jaakkopasanen/AutoEq/tree/master/results/oratory1990/over-ear/HIFIMAN HE400se. This parametric option matches with PA's "HIFMAN HE400se, Oratory1990 over-ear" (although the ordering of the bands is slightly different).

I see that. But I chose crinacle Gras 43ag-7 in all cases. In pa and in autoeq.app

I can't speak for the AutoEQ app, I was comparing with the source data in the github tables.

For example, crinacle Gras 43ag-7 for HIFMAN HE400se shows as:

And that's exactly what I get for the Parametric bands if I select that specific item from the AutoEQ Presets list in Poweramp.
