TEST: Based on these frequency graphs, which headphone would you choose? 3 graphs included.

post #1 of 6

So here are 3 frequency graphs, that each include 4 different headphones, depending on the graph, which one would you choose, i have removed the names to make it more challenging.

If you have made your decision please explain why you would pick this certain headphone.

 

 

Graph 1 :

 

 

Graph 2 :

 

graph 3

 

 

 

Have fun.

I'll give you a similar test: check the graphs for these two and tell me which one is better?

Let me guess: TF10, se535 and no idea about the others.

I would go for the IE400.

 

No, none of the graphs contain, a TF10 or a SE535

They look quite similar, don't you think? However the sound is miles away from each other. What I'm trying to say is not everything is objective in the hi-fi world. If you see the graphs of a Westone 4R you won't ever think in buying a pair. The LCD-2 and LCD-3 frequency response look pretty similar and still there's a 1000$ difference. Unfortunately of fortunately for some subjectivity matters in this world

You are correct.

 

I compared my HD558 with foammod to some other higher end cans, graph wise, some are very similar, sound wise completely different.

That is why i am curious what people will think when they see graphs like this.

 

But i am a total noob when it comes to sound/hifi, and my username describes me very well :P

I'd choose none of them since I'm given no point of reference.

 

I wouldn't say the Hifiman and Etymotic look too similar. They seem to have a fundamentally different tuning; Ety going for their diffuse field thing and Hifiman for whatever that is.
