Caution: Incomplete trades.
- Feb 29, 2008
Anytime I tried using flats I felt they sucked the life out of the music.
Flats decrease the ear/driver distance and have a firmer, less porous, top with less lateral space in which to vent. The result is a presentation that's warmer, even to the point of muting the highs. You get rich, full, amazing bass - even from the cheapest Grado - but you lose HF. An easy fix is to widen the aperture in the center, which will allow much more HF to enter the presentation. The downside, even with this tweak, is that you lose soundstage.
