    Reading Graphs: Are Measurements Representative of Sonic Experience?

    20Hz is too low for most people to hear. With a subwoofer, you get the tactile impact of such low frequencies as they literally shake your body, so you wouldn't want a lot of that anyway (it's common for sound engineers to set a high pass of 6 or 12dB somewhere around 30Hz). With headphones...

    32 Interconnect Cables Measured and Listened to!

    I don't get it. Looks like he tried to measure analog cables to determine which one would be the fastest digital cable. He's pretty much bringing eye pattern analysis into analog audio cables for no good reason. And he does it in such a way that we have even less knowledge about how to...

    If you have the education and skills you claim to have on your blog, then you have to do this constant deception game on purpose. That's unforgivable. If you don't have the education and skills you claim to have, then it means you even lied about that.

    Last post for clarity. To fully define sunjam's posts in this thread and his blog, all you need is this: Read his posts again, almost all of them have one or more of those characteristics. Me putting a stop to his grand standing operation, is merely my belief that there should be some degree...

    Don't worry about discussing something in the wrong thread, absolutely nobody stays on topic around here. I even tried to growl and show my teeth at some point, I even made a thread about off-topic, and not only did it achieve nothing, those gangsters went and posted off-topic conversations in...

    1/ Admins(the real ones)almost never interfere with this section. 2/ there is no clear concept of preventive anything. I'm bound by the rules you have all agreed to when you joined Headfi. Not acting on them is half excused by me pretending I didn't see something so long as there is no report...

    So, I've deleted 2 threads in a few days now. The why, probably isn't a huge mystery to those who were reading those threads. I'm not a fan of such heavy moves in general, but once the OP himself turns into the final boss with very many posts that shouldn't exist, I can ban him from his own...

    I'm sure he will take all that into consideration, look up some information, and come back with a different and objectively accurate take on digital audio. :deadhorse: I don't know what to do with people who don't know shame. I do have an urge to delete this thread and all his BS with it...

    Is it okay to wear the cable straight down with IEM's instead of behind the ears?

    You need the loop over your ears to accelerate the electrons at the last moment. It gives more speed to the sound and better damping. Seriously, there are different cables giving different feelings, those with memory wire to keep the shape around the ear, are favored by some, while I could...

    Having sunjam claim to use critical thinking against pseudo-science is like those 'freedom something' groups that turn out to seek anything but freedom for their people. Also, I feel his genuine desire to be heard, but he has nothing to say. It's weird, and his dishonesty to try and invent...

    1/ sighted impressions that look very much like explanations one could have without doing any test at all. 2/ I don't understand what that BLA interface dBu value is supposed to say. You loop the output of a DAC into its input? It is the DAC and if so are you sure the light tell you about...

    You left out more fun. That's achieved when the loudest test signal is 0dB or a handful below. With music that peaks at 80dB we'd get the auditory masking from those much louder signals. Plus, with 80dB peaks the acoustic reflex would have been triggered for most people already. Noticing...

    300 Ohms and 97dB/1Vrms vs a 44Vrms Output and 132dB Dynamic Range

    Finding out accurately our listening level is complicated. The way I do it uses things you are unlikely to have(mic+coupler, a reference IEM with an individual certificate giving the sensi(er4sr), and some plugs, so I can feed the IEM and measure the voltage with a multimeter at the same time...

    300 Ohms and 97dB/1Vrms vs a 44Vrms Output and 132dB Dynamic Range

    I strongly suspect it's 4V not 44. The power of 53mW is for 4V into 300ohm. Then for the sensi, from 1V to 4V we get a gain of 12.04dB. You'd actually get 97+12=109dB SPL at 1kHz. So first I'd suggest making sure the specs are the right values and right units. And second, if that predicted...

    I did what I should and then more, by now I've read most of his posts(time I'll never get back) his article, the one he took the screenshots from, Monty's article and watched the video(it had been a minute). I did it several times for each by now(to fact-check a bunch of things). Trying to...

    @theveterans. sunjam is trying to fool you with a little flattery and a game of replacing dialectic by kindergarten rhetoric, misquoting, strawmaning, cherry-picking, and just a general lack of logical continuity in his make-believe demonstrations. Sure, he's not insulting in form, but the...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    If the game has Atmos or some multichannel setting, then there is no saying what a player will use to output the audio. Some guy might be in his man cave with a magnificent multichannel speaker system. I understand the philosophy of wanting a fair game, but that never existed in the first...

    What he's demonstrated so far was that: His persona thinks very highly of itself. He can be top poster of the day on Headfi with messages that, upon scrutiny, have no content. End of list. He didn't address any legitimate point made against his Don Quixote narratives. I looked a little and...

    Question about impedance

    You get confused because many people use "hard to drive" to mean just about anything. Higher impedance does not mean harder to drive, there is no such rule. It doesn't even ensure how loud a headphone or IEM will be. So of course people who conflate those concepts can say many confusing things...

    More people who probably did not say it, are saying it. Great, let it be known that the strawman is not targeting just one man anymore.:face_palm: You (also) got it wrong about staircases. People don't try to demonstrate that hires is useless by saying there are no staircases. That makes no...
