(x.xx) is my personal sound performance score for headphones.
From 0..10, linear scale.
All the good traits carry on to the next category.
--0..1 :unlistenable, too bad for radio news report
--1..2 :mushy, veiled, sticky, wonky FR, severely compressed
--2..3 :uninteresting, lean, soft, lacks life and articulation, compressed, can be apparently neutral
--3..4 :better dynamics and details than car audio, bandwidth at least 50..12000Hz)
--4..5 :decent dynamics, free of grave freq resp violations, some imaging capabilities
--5..6 :good coherency, good imaging capabilities, sound-stage somewhat 3D, decent tonality
--6..7 :fairly transparent, able to lit up all macro-details, good tonality,some microdetail
--7..8 :microdynamics, realistic sound-stage, good transparency, great tonality, good dynamics
--8..unknown :good micro-detail and micro-dynamics (subtleties), sounds have their own space, realistic note weight
