    Because some idiots will spite-report any sound science post they don't bother putting the effort into understanding. Or maybe some mod didn't have their coffee yet, who knows.

    We all know the source of it

    Guy's trolling. Besides, he wants proof for a false assumption, so the thread was dead in any case.

    If he was trolling, he failed. He thanked me for my answer.

    I assume we'll see the beats in his inventory soon.

    Blatantly obvious troll alert.

    Yeah, he's a doozy. [​IMG]

    Blocked him. He can join AS

    He's desperate to draw me in. Ain't gonna happen. Tell it to the hand.

    I think I missed something.
     
    OK to add something to this thread. I found a DAP (dont know which one) that has at least in the graphs ENORMOUS bass roll-off under load below 150 Hz or something. Why would you ever actually MAKE such a non linear player. Think it was paired with a low impedance earphone but it was a high end player, why not take the effort to add a lower resistance output so that you can drive also other types of earphones? Or does that have something to do with gain?

    Coz that makes the bass sound "faster"? :tongue_smile:

    I think that would be a small coupling capacitor at fault here, a cheap way to remove DC offset.

    Many IEMs (the main class of earphones having impedance low enough to have their bass response severely affected by said coupling capacitor) also have greatly exaggerated bass response, so this would also be a primitive way of "equalizing" them--although it's mostly the midbass that needs to be toned down, not the subbass...

    Equalising as buying a DAP for your IEM instead of using the built in EQ of your DAP?

    Kind of like people buying specific tube amps for the HD800 instead of going "plunk" at 6kHz on an EQ.

    Don't think I've seen a clearer explanation of the rationale behind an ABX test, if I do say so myself. Hope I haven't broken any rules though :popcorn:
