I've spent a lot of time on head-fi lately and always run into people who *seem* to know what they're talking about. Terms like "highs" -- "lows" -- "mids" -- "mid upper" -- "voices sound forward" -- "the base rolls off" -- "treble rolls off" -- "recessed" -- "frequency dips and spikes"..the list could go on....my point is what does all this mean in layman's terms? Can you provide some real musical examples of some of these? In other words, you could go on youtube or something, find a song that has the element you want to describe, and say "Go listen to this song, listen specifically for this instrument or this sound *insert instrument or sound* and THAT is in the range of (high, mid, low...whatever it correlates to). If I sound pushy or aggressive, I apologize...but I'm low on time and really have get to the point. I just want to understand exactly what I'm reading so I can form an appropriate opinion.
Any and all responses are appreciated.
