    Here it's explained what it is... Seems some kind of scam.

    Beats Audio: Explained! - YouTube
    That is true all he says about beats audio, however what is not mentioned is how there is a dedicated chip for the audio to come out of our HTC devices (NOT A GIMMICK!) This is what really gives that boost and makes the audio quality crisper and nice. (2 volts vs 1 volt, and so on...) it's a lot of little things going on in the phone. The beats audio is just a little part of it.

    To answer you OP, I have monster mobile jamz earphones and boy do they boost with them. Also my friends regular Panasonic headphones (like 14$ worth) started to sound pretty decent when I had them on. It will work better im sure with other headphones AND actually I heard it doesn't work with beats headphones so well loool ironically but I can't vouch for that lasts part :P never tried

    Not true. I have been testing it with different audio and video files and there's much more than just equalizer settings. The biggest difference I have noticed was with video files from Youtube - turning Beats Audio on has added a lot of juice and space to the sound, for me the difference was like listening to the audio track through small TV speaker vs Home Cinema. And the result was great even using the bundled earphones, which I find really nice to use (they also have a very good microphone).

    eq + some kind of enhancer/exciter boosting certain frequencies.

    when I am listening to any kind of music, I always want to hear how particular mixed was mixed by author. i am not into any kind of enhancer/exciter or whatever post-processing on finished piece.
