Since I listen to a whole slew of things, I had to find a compromise that would suit everything. I ended up with an almost stock and neutral setting.

Bass: +1
Mid: +2
Treble: +1
Fade/Bal: -1/0

(each "point" is basically 1 notch on the slider on the touchscreen. That's actually 2 buttons presses to make it move a full notch).

I find that this is kind of that sweet spot between listening to music via USB or line-in, podcasts via Bluetooth, or sports or news radio (aka fuzzy, muted AM band stuff).

AM sports radio to listen to games is really soft and slightly muddy, so I have to boost the Mid in order to hear the voices better. This also helps with podcasts which are just pure vocals. Boosting the bass a little bit helps even out the increased mids; it prevents the mids from being too in-your-face. Increasing the treble helps boost up low quality podcasts as well as sports radio, while also improving a bit of the higher range stuff in music that's not produced in the front speakers.

Pushing the Fade back -1 is just my preference. I don't like loud music blaring in my ears. Pushing it back makes it feel a bit more balanced to me (i.e. front sounds equally as loud as the rear).

I listen to hip-hop, pop, and R&B, mostly through Bluetooth audio through my iPhone 6. I've played around with mine for the last year or so and these are my favorite settings:

Bass: +2
Mid: 0
Treble: +3
Fade: -3

Stock if that helps?

it also depends on how loud you listen to music and type of music, for me stock happens to be the sweet spot.

Depends on the the source. If I'm listening to HD radio the bass is normally higher, so I need to turn bass down, whilst if playing from spotify bluetooth with my phone, the bass needs increasing a few notches. I am still playing around with the settings.

In general comments, I like the stereo but I think it could have more clarity to it.
