Thanks for that!
These B&W's supposedly go from 10Hz (low) to 20kHz (high). The Sennheiser's I have in comparison go from 16Hz (low) to 22kHz (high). I think this may
be why I'm hearing more highs with the Senns and they seem "brighter"? It's also a 28 ohm headset compared to the Sennheiser which is 70 ohms. They're
not exactly flat across the frequency range, I'm not very used to looking at these things, maybe you can tell if this curve looks good or not?
I've "mastered" some vocal tracks of my own with headphones, and honestly I felt that because I was able to hear all the tiny details, I was getting a
tighter and better end result. I was able to adjust the noise gate, compression settings and everything to a much finer detail than if I sat in front
of some speakers.
I would, however, burn the first draft to a CD and run around playing it on all kinds of speakers though. Cheap ones, expensive ones, in cars, home
theatres...I wanted to see how it sounded across the spectrum. Usually, it sounded good off the bat on high-end stuff, but not so good on lower end
Cars were wonky, I could mix something together that sounded really good at home and in the ear, but sound really off in the car.
I have an old, old amp from the 1970's that belonged to my Dad. He had one of those component hi-fi setups. The thing is solid metal and weighs a ton.
I have no idea what brand it is, but it pushes these two 3-way wood cabinet floor speakers that he also had. 10" woofers on those...I don't have it
hooked up right now though. At one time he had a turntable, a dual tape deck, and separate radio hooked through it.
I refuse to get rid of the amp and speakers, simply refuse. They just don't make stuff like that anymore -- well, they do but they cost thousands and
