    Harsh Sibilants in playback

    Hello! I have an Asus Xonar SE. When I watch some videos off of Youtube the Ss and other harsh sibilants tend to drill though my skull. Is there a way to tone them down to more acceptable levels?

    Example - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9AeTsNzQcY - When ever Diana speaks it's all sharp Ssssses .

    I have a Sound Blaster card and Logitech speakers and that video does have sharp s sounds. I think it's just the audio mastering or perhaps Youtube's compression is doing something to it. You can probably tweak your EQ but it's going to kill the high end on everything else too.
