Dell S2715H Sound from built in Speakers - Equaliser Settings

I recently moved my Mac Mini to a new table and connected a Dell S2715H monitor via HDMI. The table has limited space and I wasn't able to move the desktop speakers I had been using on my Mac. Hence, I had to make do with the built-in speakers on the Dell S2715H monitor. The built-in speakers sounded horrible.

In a desperate attempt to alleviate myself from audio torment, I started to play around with the iTunes equaliser settings. Turns out you can get reasonably acceptable sound from the built-in speakers. After much tuning, here are the settings I have set on iTunes.

So if you do have this nice 27 inch full HD monitor and do not like the sound coming from the built-in speakers, perhaps you can try these equaliser settings. These should also work if you are on a Windows PC and using the same monitor.
