How do Youtubers make their speakers sound better than mine?

I sometimes watch some reviews on YouTube, and the speakers often seem to sound better than the ones that I am using to listen to them on.

I know that that's a trick, so what EQ or other tricks do they use to lie to you?

Here is a new and prime example: Buchardt A500 _(Z Reviews)_ Setting a REAL HIGH Bar .5 - YouTube

In this case I think that he just passes the source to the soundtrack, EQs it, and then plays with the sound when he puts his hands in front of the drivers.

Paul Daniels!

I wonder if Buchardt are aware of this.

Hmmm... He moved, and his new place became even dirtier. As did his mouth.

Z definitely eq's headphone sound demos. Not so sure about speakers. However that basment of his does seem to have good acoustics. He's got good sorce files and nice isolation stands. High quality mics and speakers that measure superbly. No reason why that setup wouldn't kick ass in truth.
