Describing Sound - A Glossary - Page 13

A Vibration of physical matter.

Hence to really feel it and know it you have to Move with it.

If the music you listen to does not make you feel like moving to it.

It's simply not very moving music :-) .

does flat mean equal emphasis on bass, mid and treble? and is it a bad thing to be flat?

^ I guess you can interpret flat in two ways I can think of. A flat response from audio gear is what you have described. The other is flat sounding music - lacks dynamic range

Good morning,
I own Nokia e90 and the earbud that comes with it, the nokia HS-47. I like the sound of this combo. When I was trying out sony E series with a cheap sonicgear earbud, I immediately hated the way it sounded. But I need a proper words for the sound so that when I am planning to purchase a proper iem, I can make sure it doesn't sound such. When I listened to the sony and the sonicgear earbud, the music sounded like screeching! The sound was like having very high frequency and not pleasant to my ears. When I come back to my nokia combo, the music does not have that 'high frequency' and was much comfortable to listen to even for longer hours. What is the terms used for that sound?
Thank you in advance...

Many very nice words for describing what we hear as music from our systems. As we get older this Glossary of "Ours" keeps growing, and more opinionated ....

I try to verify definitions with other sources as much as possible to find common language across the audio hobby rather than too much head-fi specific language.

This is great. Since I was new to Head-Fi, this will be very useful to me. I had known some basic terms but not everything. I hope you add more if you discover or learn more terms. Thank You.

Very good for people without any audio education. Kudos

This needs to be re-stickied.

I agree. Many people get confused by a lot of the terminology used. Stickying this would allow for a swift means of those less educated in audio terminology to figure out exactly what is being discussed. Just my 2cents ;)
