Cold and warm sound?
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
I tend to prefer my source gear to be as neutral as possible. That way you can chose speakers/phones with the type of sound signature you want.
I want to tell you that many people have wrong idea of the meaning of cold and warm sound. Such feel of sound has really nothing to do with the degree of its quality.
Warm sound comes from the material which is warm on touch such as wood while cold one comes from the metal. As result warm sound is more neutral and smooth, while cold one is quite transparent and spiky.
The statement of VoLTaG3 "A cold sound is when the HIGHS are more pronounced that the other frequencies. A warm sound is when the BASS is more pronounced than the other frequencies". Yes, this statement is close to be truth, but still there is more to say. The coldness of sound has a lot to do with the housing of the speaker.
