Why do people call headphones "Fast"? What on earth is that supposed to mean?

Fast - Good reproduction of rapid transients which increase the sense of realism and "snap".
basically a slow sounding device will blur changes in sound together creating a somewhat diffuse or smeared sound. Imagine the crispy sound of a snare drum in real life... it begins and ends fast without much after the initial sound/attack. Now a slow sounding speaker or headphone will take that crisp quick instance and dull it, drawing it out and smearing the detail of the event.\
FYI I'm very tired and have been drinking so I hope that makes sense lol
