Thanks. That's a great idea. I am returning my fixture unfortunately but can do later on.
Very interesting review. Any chance we can start calculating Harman preference ratings for headphones too? (I know Oratory1990 calculates them for his measurements)
Well, hopefully with Amir's new reviews/tests, we shall see - planars vs dynamics - let the match begin !dynamic drivers are, to, still the best balance of compromises
I am not saying that 100% of the time anything is a fact, however often I find that light bass can be confused with "speed" or that folks thinQuite disagree. HD600 bass rolls off significantly but still sounds slow as hell next to a good estat, even if both are EQ'd to the same FR.
I am not saying that it is always the case that "fast" or "tight" or accurate bass is actually thin bass in disguise, I am saying this does happen often IMHO and I have even been confused by it myself from time to time.Quite disagree.

1000 likes for dougi!While I applaud Amir considering adopting a headphone measurement rig to round out what ASR is capable of, given the number of other headphone measurement sources available (mentioned in the thread) I would prefer products measured where others are lacking. ie Speakers and amplifiers. I would prefer to somehow see a consistent DSP/room correction assessment method deployed, if practicable.
When It comes to headphones and speaker or other audio equipment, the only thing you should trust is your hearing and nothing else.
