My headphone experience is a bit different. My LCD3's let me hear more details than any speakers under 20k or so, but I do miss the larger sound from speakers when I'm wearing them.after diving head first into headphone game I hear alot more...nothing close to my stereo fullrange home setup...but way easier to focus and listen and hear stuff different.

Food companies and restaurants spend enormous amounts of time and money to determine the likes and dislikes of consumers via taste testing that is conducted using a scientific method. The data from those findings are used to develop new or alter preexisting products. The intent is to have a product that is favored by the majority. If this well known and accepted discipline is used for taste, why not do the same for hearing?well I guess so...most people know what they like and dont need science to tell them
I would assume that is why there is a Harmon curve because their findings agree with you. I want a speaker that measures flat because it shows accuracy. I will always season to taste regardless of what others tell me. My money, my home, my sound. I find the science interesting, but much of it is over my head. I didn't buy JBL for the science, but I am confident their science had a lot to do with me ending up as a customer. Likewise, McDonalds french fries are my favorite. I am sure there was some science that took place behind the scenes that keeps me coming back.many, many smart people have lost their shirts/bank rolls on science...I thought we all could agree flat sounds like shiit but guess not

The funny thing is most headphones have fudge all above 10KHz anyway, if you look at top headphones like Orpheus, SR-009, Utopia, etc, it's a total mess usually starting above 6-8KHz, and beyond 10K it looks like a failed polygraph exam. You basically are just listening to 20Hz - 10KHz range with most headphones.science probably says that those that can afford 10k + speakers cant hear abover 15khz if lucky...
Most companies spend more on marketing than research. Like the Bose tagline says... Better sound through research. 😀Molon_Labe,
Thank you for the head's up. I expect it, but it is sad, as we are supposed to be working toward better sound.
