All that you would be comparing is equipment against equipment. A speaker should reproduce the sound properly enough to create an...

The bass gets MUCH more refined after burn-in, and to me, it got quicker and more detailed as well. And the soundstage...it actually grows a lot over a couple weeks, its amazing. Looking forward to hear more impressions from you. The soundstage is already pretty good. I have...

May be if you had toned down the title a little you wouldn't have made dookiex want to plug his EX700. I think he wanted you to like his musical EX700 over your clinical...

A good neutral speaker in a well treated room can recreate most of it pretty closely. Quote: Thus he made it a point in the beginning of his article which sums...

You can take an instrument, record it and play it back and it should sound the same as the real instrument. If a system can do that it is accurate. No voodoo involved.
Quote: Originally Posted by dookiex Just pointing out how your own "proof" contradicts your concept of accuracy/analytical and neutrality is the equivalent of musical. You welcome. No it doesn't. In fact, it proves mine. Linkwitz is saying he has no way of knowing whether the recording engineer captured the sound of "natural" thing in the best possible way. "When I purchase a CD I have no clear trail to any acoustic reference and I must rely...

I wish I could see a IE7 frequency response chart though, to compare it. I don't think any of my dynamic driver phones sounded good out of the box. I think that is because most of them have very exaggerated bass. You have to wait for the boom to settle. The IE7s don't have loads of bass. They don't sound great...
