Over the past week or so I have been learning a lot. At first I was looking at the PRO 750s, 900s, and the Hfi-780s. I haven't ruled them out quite yet but I have some concerns considering what it is that I am looking for. Now, I may be totally wrong here so someone correct me if need be (I am still a n00b). I am looking for fidelity in my listening experience. I don't think it is up to the brand and/or producer of my headphones to decide how my music sounds. Personally, I believe that to have fidelity in one's listening experience one must be using headphones (and other equipment) that provide a flat FR (or at least as close to flat as can be). It is up to the producer/artist what I hear in the music. I don't want anything modified. IE: I have heard that Ultrasone headphones are very bass heavy. While that may sound good and perhaps even "better" I am looking for fidelity.
Not only am I looking for a flat FR but I don't want sibilance problems. Also, I am interested in what "color" is in the context of audio. I have tried to look this up online but cannot find a definition. What is "color"? How does it affect sound? Please, fill me in on the ins and outs of color.
Next I am going to do some research in regards to DACs, portable amps, cables, DAPs, etc. Hopefully, I can achieve fidelity in my listening experience. If it seems as though I have a mis-understanding or poor perspective in any shape, way, or form please fill me in! Thanks for taking the time to view my thread. I certainly appreciate the expertise of my fellow head-fiers.
