Imaging Sound-stage and Dynamics- Growing Instinctual Appreciation - Page 3

post #31 of 33

Guess it is pretty simple. Angled drivers will mostly give a sense of a more focused, forward and deep soundstage, due to the sound coming from in front. Non-angled would most likely give a less specific and more spread out soundstage, with the notion of sound coming from within/behind the head with less specificity.

 

That is my experience.

I guess the question was more about the how and why, not if.

 

Soundstage with stereo recordings and headphones is a difficult topic - imo there is no real soundstage no matter how you angle the drivers.

 

Anyway, frequency response is very important. Angled drivers to me seem to be just another tool in the mechanical equalization toolbox.

indeed the w1000x has angled drivers and it does 3D sound very well... although so does the DT 880 which does not have angled drivers >.>
