So minidsp released new calibration files -
  1. HEQ: Default headphone compensation curve for flat EQ target
  2. HPN: Default headphone compensation curve for miniDSP EARS

So if we want to measure our headphones - which one is more "accurate"? Is HEQ supposed to be closer to something like GRAS?

Also - "Use this file on the LEFT channel. Your sensitive side is LEFT" so i use that file for the LEFT mic when doing measurements - what does sensitive side mean?

I suggest try HEQ, it should give measurements closer to those on say rtings.
I am not miniDSP support.
