Hi this is a digression / question / rant.
I can never really understand why do people ask what music you listen to when they need to recommend a pair of phones.
I mean, the term Hi-Fi comes from the desire that the source is reproduced in the most reliable and exact way.
If the result of reproducing the source is the closest match, you have a good pair of Hi-Fi phones.
So why is it so important to know what music I listen to to recommend some cans ?
If a certain pair of phones have more or less bass (or treble) using the same source, clearly one or other is colouring the signal in certain way.
So what am I missing ?
Anyone want to throw some thoughts on this ?
