Subjectivist? I follow a holistic approach, and I know the value and limits of measurements. You, on the other hand, sound like a fanatic..."non-believers."
Again, you fail to distinguish between technical performance and frequency response.
Then tell you what. Place your files on a flash drive, and send it out along with your phones. The panel can have an 85% pass rate, to account for such differences. Technical performance shouldn't be affected by frequencies.
Yes, your MH463 surpasses the Orpheus...for your ears. Good.
Feel free to PM me when you're made the necessary arrangements.
I didn't even complete my written tutorial and trying to walk someone through it interactively on the net was a disaster and you claim that you've "followed my technique"? How?
I go by what my ears tell me too.
You fail to point out what "technical performance" metric you're referring to. What technical measurement shows that the SM64 is technically superior to any number of well engineered IEMs for a fraction of the price?
My contention is that such a panel would not find my phones "superior" to expensive phones, EXACTLY because "technical performance" CAN be affected by frequencies. At best it would sound as good as *a* high end phone, and people squabble all the time over *which* high end phone sounds the best. Given the number of different TOTL phones out there I would be surprised if my phones get the nod more than 10% of the time even if it is indeed "technically" up there with the best, simply as a result of random chance picking. Too many good phones to choose from and prefer over each other.
I said the MH463's sound sig has been tailored to my ears while the Orpheus wasn't. I don't claim to have heard the latter or that the former sounds better than the latter to me (although this is possible if the latter's sound sig is too far from my preferences)
I would be tempted to go along with this experiment if I didn't just sell off the spare pair of MH463 I had.
