Good description. They're definitely separate things. I hear a bit of both personally. Maybe I'm nuts.
I think y'all are
So what the hell is this tint!!! I guess I'll just have to find out when I my ASG-1 arrives. Ugh.
yup - still no one has answered:
"tint" to me....
One does not simply say tint, without tinted windows.
It's when a boy earphone and a girl earphone really like each other, so they...
Jokes aside, it's difficult to describe. You have to hear it yourself.
It's hard to explain really, it's like another flavor of sound, but retrieves the same detailing. I think two tinted windows does the same thing effect (from the inside). One is shifted this way, the other another way, but in the end, you still get the same (relative) picture of things. A tint doesn't cover though (so it doesn't veil). Another way to think about it might be the coloration in the vocals (over the rest of the mids).
I have never heard of such thing...
Its almost a euphemism now... when I was your age, we used to call it sounding "off." Then I'd walk 15 miles to school, barefoot, uphill, both ways, through briar bushes, and it was always winter.
Serioulsy though, don't let it bother you. If you think it sounds fine, then that's one less thing to worry about.
Veil - To cover with or as if with a veil so to cover the highs. Tint - to color to cause to become darker so treble seems to be flat and not as high as desired.
I do agree with this now. It's just a few songs where I wish the treble was more focused. I think these have a great delicacy to them, just lack focus in some songs :(
I find that one single bigger hole is also working to eliminate the shoutiness. Easier to implement.
With the dogears filter, I find it easier to listen to the treble detail now. It's no DBA treble but its fine by me.
