Headphones: Can you use bass boosted headphones as professional sound editing headphones after making some changes in software or hardware changes?


I am here to ask some technical questions about differences between some audio devices and about them point by point. I am a beginner or nerd in audio devices and sound editing.

Can you produce flat sound from a bass headphone by using some software or not? (for purpose of professional audio editing)

Can you make changes to a bass boosted headphones manually (to hardware or its software) to be able to use it as flat headphones for audio editing? If yes, then how?

Unless you have specific measuring tools for headphones, you'd have to do it by ear - see this for a quick rundown of how you can do it on Mac - How to do speaker correction on a MacBook Pro Retina

Windows might be a tougher proposition, unless you can leverage something like Equalizer APO into your workflow. I have no real experience with audio routing on Windows.
