That's great, I just happen to be looking for someone who can help me make perfect sense of the article. I appreciate your detailed explanation and helpful response.
Let me start by reiterating my questions
What does freefield tuning have to do with it when Mr Sead's post explicitly begins with "Thus originally flat response in the free field (FF) will not be flat at drum reference point (DRP)." ?
How does one go about training oneself to negate the 6db effect, and is this something we expect the average user of Xperia phones to be able to perform?
What evidence do we have to suggest that this entire thread is a shill for selling 20 dollar headphones to a community that happily pays $300 for a pair of similar sounding ones?
