This was a pretty fun list by Resolve. I think it may be a little more reflective of the phases he's personally been through in his own thinking on headphone measurements though, than some others. Though I can certainly identify with alot of what he's talkin about here. And I suspect some others here may as well. (Hence the reason for this post.)
There are some things I agree with in this, and others I don't though.
And I hope that stage 11 is realizing that we need more in-ear frequency response data on good-sounding loudspeakers in a room for comparison with the in-ear data of headphones. Preferably measured on the exact same anthropomorphic rigs (with a mannikin) that are used for the headphone FR measurements.side
Side question, but how do you get the "addicted to fun and learning" tag under your's and others names?Since I brought up some of the shortcomings in the 711 system, I should also mention that in some recent studies, Harman researchers also uncovered some possible issues with the accuracy of the HBK's 5128 mannikin in terms of its potential leakage/interfacing effects with certain headphones. The study is discussed in the latter part of this video for a recent HBK conference. I've pre-cued the video to where that particular info begins. The rest is a summary of Harman's other work and findings related to headphones (so feel free to back it up to also give that a listen, if you wish.)
I believe there was some additional discussion on this subject in a couple topics here on ASR as well. This is one of them, but I think there may have been at least one other as well. (This is goin back several months now, so my memory is a bit fuzzy.)
Bruel & Kjaer (BK), makers of precision acoustic measurement products, had a nice two day virtual conference. I wanted to listen to a bunch of them but had a major conflict. Fortunately, I watched two talks related to headphone measurements: First one was by Jude Mansilla of Head-fi with the...www.audiosciencereview.com
