These NHT earbuds allow you to download an equalizer app that works with Android and iOS, offering a customizable experience for all users. While these in-ear headphones offer a wide experience of the audio spectrum, with smooth highs and they are quite bass-heavy. This can be tuned to some degree by using the equalizer app but they may be too bass-heavy for the casual listener or fans of softer genres. These headphones don’t mess around.
The extra tips that come with the NHT Superbuds allow you to customize your experience with these headphones. Using the tighter fitting tips gives you a boost in bass and higher frequency sound, while using the looser fitting tips allows the low-fi sound to shine and can help dampen some of the strong basses which seem to define these headphones.
