Though I disagree with the notion that one can to rule them all just because some argument about mastering, I do believe the "ultimate can" is an extremely neutral unforgiving one. But beyond that, I do feel that sometimes, headphones that "color" the sound to fit certain genres better are a good thing and nice to have.
@Manveru I'm not saying I have to have a can for every single genre....that IS silly. But because their are very powerful extremes in the sound of music across the board of it all, tt can be necessary for people like me to feel the need for multiple headphones to please them. To further add into that, there is the whole idea of just simply loving how a certain headphone sounds with some things and how one may sound with others.Sometimes there is no better, there just is how each does things differently and there is something to be respected about that and how some folks have that issue. You don't have to have 20 headphones for that, but I can understand why some have 5 or so just because they enjoy how certain cans treat certain songs. Maybe there is a more balanced option out there for those guys, maybe there isn't. Until it comes to fruition, the best choice is to have more than one can.
Ultimate can is something that fits in all your music preference!
Sometimes I just feel like some different pair for comfort or wtv.
I still find neutral, or neutral enough, is best. With a bit more emphasis the low end, and less on the high end to get a bit more fun and a bit less analytical. If that even makes sense.
That's what I'm talking about though. I don't think that even makes any sense at all. IME there's no such thing as a headphone which "smooths over" a bad recording, or a headphone that will "let you know if something is badly recorded." A bad recording sounds like just as bad a recording on ibuds as on multi-hundred dollar headphones. The "revealing" headphones actually make it sound better...because they are better headphones. Maybe it's just me.
Ew...haha. I love actual green tea, but any food that is green tea flavored for some reason makes me gag.
So something without too much treble should be a bit more "forgiving", though naturally it is not a solve-all solution.
It's weird. I've tried green tea ice cream and cakes or breads before. Both made me feel really sick. But I drink green tea and it's awesome.
What other options? The reason I started complaining in the first place is because I was saying there were no other good options. Just a few that are decent at best and then a whole lot which suck really bad.
Maccha comes in powder form AFAIK and the ones bought in packets are often sweetened. Maybe you just don't like maccha taste since "green tea icecream" is probably often really maccha icecream.
@Manveru To an extent, I see what you are saying but I have found lesser recorded things sound anything from bland to to downright unpleasant on high end headphones. Let's take some low end production rap for example. A terrible headphone like the beats studio(it is quite bad for 90% of music for a $300 headphone imo) does great at bringing some real fun to a lot of that rap and I actually would recommend the beats if you cared about style somewhat and listened to only that kind of rap. But when I plopped some in a 007 Omega....it kind of was...very meh sounding >_>
Now someone who's focus is to hear everything and that is their pleasure? I think your theory is true.
When you bring crappy recordings to be heard in high fidelity, you can only listen in awe at how crappily it was recorded.
HiFi definitely incompatible with LQ music.
Either way, liked them both better than the AKG equivalents.
