Idk, and you don't need headphones/money to ask for reviews :)

 

Was just asking him on one specific phone and he brought in the esp/950 and went into detail. Don't think he has a review, but he has sent me some messages. I'll b bach with them soon. Must read his walls of text.

Now at Tracey. Get into CS and build cool schiit like this. My friend is working on this project.

I think that a lot of this has to deal with how one views things.

 

We at headphone meets will see us and the world using headphones a lot. But one can easilly change how the world is seen by going to the other side.

 

I have a family owend speaker business near me. They have been in business for 3 generations and are going strong. When I asked them about 'speakers dissapearing', he chuckled and gave me some statistics. 

 

Nowadays there are more speaker companies and units sold than ever before(enthusiast level ones that is). The rich are getting richer and just buying this stuff up and many people still have a feel for 'enthusiast audio'.

 

The video above that I linked I feel answers your questions quite well. We are placing the full abilities of speakers into the size of a coffee holder plate. Whilst the speaker has the size of a bookshelf to fullfill all its functions.

You need help with your direct and indirect objects.(I do too usually. Except I just can't be arsed to fix them)  Your 'he' and 'I's' are directing/misdirecting to a lot of things.

 

I'm guessing you mean that he is claiming that you do not know what cans you have even.

To be honest.

 

I don't remember you two talking about your personal cans that much.

 

What do you guys use actually as main sets?

panthers uses an he-400/mad dogs/something with a digizoid zo2 the last time I checked. He has a p-t now though. 

I have nothing for a main set :D

http://www.reddit.com/r/audiophile/comments/1fgfrb/a_spotify_playlist_i_made_of_all_the_grammy_best/

 

A dude organized a spotify playlist of all the grammy's best engineered albums.

 

One dude's comment explains(not sure if correct as I don't know) the grammy's 

 

Quote:

The Grammys are awarded by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, which is made up of artists and recording professionals. And because there are far more producers, engineers, equipment makers, and other non-musicians in the Academy than actual musicians, you see what can seem like strange anomalies between what is considered popular and what is awarded.

As we see each year, engineers, equipment makers, and producers are going to have different tastes than the general listening public, thus the differences (or joke).

And that's why this playlist should be interesting to audiophiles. It's the recordings voted on by recording engineers that have the best audio engineering of any other song or album that year.

So this should be interesting for us audiophiles

 

Listening to a few songs. I can say that these recordings are quite good.

 

Eric Clapton's 'So Tired' has some boomy bass though.

He says headphones sound good with that mix at that environment. How is that any different from speakers? He says his job is to make the sound sound good for any environment, yet he uses a specific speaker to do so. It makes no sense to me. How is using a specific speaker to do blah any better than using a headphone to do the same blah?

Mastering engineers are more artist then scientist, meaning more subjective and less objective.
They listen to their mixes with their ears and not perform spectral analysis.

My point? In general, they do what ever makes the music sounds good... to them. Be it vintage effect units or certain gears they like.

 

As for mastering with speakers, I think it's just convention to use them... I think.

you can't really hear a proper soundstage with headphones though.

Yeah, I think 3.5k is ridiculous too...

I if they're all hand-made in the US then the price is justifiable I guess.......
not that I think there's any advantage to stuff mass-produced in china.
