I was a bit surprising to see science "banned" from the rest of the forum, and I think my question belongs here.
HeadRoom and Inner Fidelity have frequency response charts for many headphones. I plan to use these charts to find more options that match a few headphones I heard and liked. Maybe mixing and matching different frequencies liked best.
Does this make sense, or am I missing something?
Can the same charts be used to evaluate matching to neutral balance? This is following the paper discussed at http://www.head-fi.org/t/632286/aes-2012-paper-relationship-between-perception-and-measurement-of-headphone-sound-quality but I don't know if "neutral" headphones are necessarily mostly flat. They could have done some transformations so I don't know if their charts can be directly compared to the charts from HeadRoom and Inner Fidelity.
Any thoughts on this?
