Yes I totally agree with your concerns. Statements like "the best headphone i've ever heard", worlds best, better than xyz but then i've never actually heard that model.
I have had exactly the same remarks and conversation with forum member michaelxray or Otwin as he is known elsewhere. I have asked the same questions of the German forum where some of these rather florid descriptions originated. However; when you actually ask for facts an answer is evaded or excuses given.
I wish people would just state the facts and say eg I think its a great headphone and have experience of X, Y and Z but cant comment on A as i've never heard it!
This is i'm afraid par for the course on many forums, people will recommend or critique equipment they have no first hand experience of. Its how the legends of myths and fashions of the internet get created and get quoted as fact.
Yes, Otwin. correctly
A good system cleaner works without ear pads as a system with ear pads.
If it's good.
it is not difficult to understand.
If they then also hear exactly, then at least they will have no problem understanding that.
They must have a measurement to assess the quality of live of a cello?
Or satisfy their ears to decide that they have a superb quality?
Then they do a blanket in the same room between you and the cello.
They then need to measure in order to understand that the quality is not the same?
Ear pads are always affect the sound. It can not work otherwise.
Whether it a HD800, T1, LCD3, HE-6 ....
One thing remains: you come up with the originality of the sound to a certain point and end. Until then, and no further.
Then you can improve a HD800. It will be a HD1000. He is a little better, more self-evident - a bit more of everything.
The same character. Only slightly better.
To achieve more, they need to change the system. Not improve. Change.
This is what distinguishes the float.
Therefore your question has already been answered by facts. It can get another 20 Stax. As long as they have ear pads, they will not have the same sound quality of the float.
They say: Flowery description
Why? Just because I'm not a robot?
they are in front of a live instrument, what happens to them?
Measurements? They see an oscilloscope?
Or reach her heart sounds and music?
The emotion is gone then?
It then goes to musical language or graphs, diagrams, amplitudes?
I know the translation is terrible. But unfortunately, I can not offer more.
I hope they can forgive.
