Grado Fan Club! - Page 2259

post #33871 of 33875
Well I've never heard any other Grado, so I have no reason to disagree.

Despite the HF2s having no soundstage, they are more enjoyable than other technically brilliant, large soundstaging headphones.

I wonder if people are tripping about having music over 'there' or are they actually listening to how sounds interact with other sounds to create new 'chords' and sub rhythms in addition to the overall rhythm.

These HF2s are able to generate so much music in the uppermids, such a different yet altogether correct presentation, because the information must already be there for the headphone to create such a mix.

I was thinking about music last night and how instinctual it is... Animals bopping to the beat, babies enthusiastically 'dancing' to the rhythm... Just instinctively.

Then I realise, the tempo range in beats per minute matches exactly the human heart rate from state of rest to state of panic. Music doesn't exceed the human heart rate.

Therefore music was ingrained over nine months as you heard all your mother's emotions through her heart beat.

Certainly an interesting theory, to say the least!

I recently bought one of these usb reclocker gizmos for my DAC... Its got 2 clocks, one for 44.1 and one for 48 and their multiples. Them master clocks are important for timing reference.

The human heart is our master clock, it can vary depending on the situation, very evident in excercise. And of course timing is everything in music.

It is after all the fourth dimension.
