Here's a video of Bob Katz experimenting with headphone eq and the target curve.

If clearly shows that he thinks it's all bullshit what the scientists are claiming.
Sorry the scientists are wrong.

I am a post graduate qualified scientist. Obviously you are not reading what I'm posting. I know what a good scientific paper is. These are not. They are rubbish. They don't contain proper statistical tests. They are conference papers clearly labelled by a company. No reputable scientific paper has...

Post something that you consider evidence. Without it I can't believe you. And neither should anyone else. I'm not trying to prove anything. I'm disproving the Harman papers tell you what headphones to buy, or tell you opinions of others are invalid. And I am saying anyone who posts these papers ca...

1 Neutral sound only means a flat frequency response in electronic equipment. For in room loudspeakers and headphones this is not the case. 2 If you can't find a null hypothesis in these research papers, then your not looking. But they use a room speaker EQ'd to a flat response as the headphone ref...

P. S. The majority of people prefer neutral sound. See the audio musings site. If you make a headphone with a flat frequency curve, it will not sound good. I suppose this could be a semantic thing, that a neutral sound is not a flat frequency curve, although most people would think a neutral curve ...

This doesn't tell us which headphones help create mixes and sounds that translate well, or which ones are the most comfortable and least fatiguing. No it doesn't. And fact is that if you can't mix on any headphone, you can't mix. But I speculate that a headphone that is neutral, meaning it doesn't ...

Just to clarify. All I do is show the wigglers what the science guy's are saying about headphone sound quality: The frequency cure of headphones is a very important factor concerning sound quality. And you can improve the quality of your headphone with eq. This last thing is easy for every wiggler t...

What’s a solid, decent pair for mixing and monitoring synth music on that are reasonably neutral but reproduce bass well enough? Since having a kid I spend 90% of my studio time on headphones.

Gate to pitch can only give you 2 note values per gate.

But combining them can create lots more.

To recap: A masterclock is ONLY useful when multiple converters pickup THE SAME ACOUSTIC sound. In ALL other cases it's useless. This is not correct. When you have a digital recording system comprised of multiple digital devices, it is important to clock them all from the same clock source. This is...

About cables, don't worry... even the ugliest and longest you will find will transmit your audio top notch. In general yes. But with guitar you have a very high output impedance and then you can, in some cases, hear high frequency loss. One often occurring example is the guitarist that has all pass...

a cable, that you need to connect the clock signal to other devices, is a low pass filter at those high frequencies and thus increases jitter greatly. I believe but am not certain that word clock signals must use 75 ohm impedance matching to mitigate / overcome this issue. If the impedances of outp...
