    OK.  I think if you read what I wrote about the headphone impedance and phase graphs, which goes into more detail, could be helpful in gaining a better understanding.

    Also wiki on impedance has the same info, and maybe clearer in how it's explained.

    I think that some musical instruments when recorded with some mics & some mic techniques and played back on some loudspeakers will have audible polarity differences.  But the slightly better polarity at one point in an album may be the poorer choice at another point in the same album.
