I actually made a seperate thread for this. here's the link below. =D
"Flat response graph vs the real thing and speakers"
I was just curious because I've noticed some are quick to point out that a certain headphone with a flatter response graph would be more accurate than say one with more deviation. But I was wondering if sometimes these deviations from flat like say what you see in the PS1000 might in effect be an attempt to compensate for the inherent limitations and different listening conditions of headphones. If that's the case then maybe we shouldn't so quick to judge which headphone is more accurate based on how flat the response curve is unless we've actually A/B'd that headphone with say a top grade speaker. But then ofcourse speakers sound different from eachother as well. haha..
I'm not trying to make the case that the PS1000 might be more accurate or superior as I've only briefly listened to them and my knowledge of the technical side of these things are limited. But was just curious and seeing if other fellow more experienced and knowledgeable members would have some nice insights to share.
Sometimes I think after I got into this hobby I find myself too caught up in listening to the headphone or the gear's technical ability rather than just feeling the music. Back in the day I can listen to music through most anything and just be completely focussed in the moment. I think I need to get back to that.
Going back in to audition the 3 mentioned headphones very soon. And I'm gonna listen for a long time this time and see which one moves me more. lol
