    Default Wow! What a different experience

    Ok, I just got a new iPhone and put it into my Klipsch iPhone speaker system, and I am blown away listening to ADKOT thru this system. ADKOT sounds like a completely different album. The bass is way out in front and it dominates the entire album. My face is melted off listening to the album thru this system.

    I bought a pair of skull candy aviators for like 150 or so and it's amazing what you pick up with good head phones. I for get what song I was listening to but I actually heard someone fart.

    Sad that after 33 years of technology, VH can't produce an album as good as they did in 1978 with VH1 and we have to rely on very high end equipment to hear extra bass, etc.

    Please note, I'm just talking production quality, not songs...

    Albums today are made to sound "good" on cheapo small speakers, like those iphone ear plugs and etc...

    Brown sound.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Well that isn't working because VH1 sounds better on my cheapo small speakers than ADKOT does.

    We had a long thread on the subject of mastering when the album originally dropped ( http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/showthread.php?t=54364 ), but here is a recent post that I found interesting that helps dispel the myth that tracks are mastered for iPods/earbuds in particular.

    http://bobbyowsinski.blogspot.com/20...r-earbuds.html

    Excerpt:


    Given how many people listen to music on portable digital players, do you find that producers are mixing for earbuds? Is it common to find an "iPod mix" that you master separately?

    Bob Ludwig: No it isn't. Dr. Floyd Toole (of Harman International, the makers of JBL speakers) showed that averaging all the different consumer speakers (some bright, some with too much bass or midrange etc.) one ends up with a very flat curve which is empirical proof that mastering with an extremely accurate and flat playback system yields a product that sounds correct on more systems.

    Like speakers, earbuds run the gamut from the old stock Apple earbuds that sounded tinny and lacking warmth to top-of-the-line Shure earbuds that are extremely accurate, to "hip-hop" earbuds that are overly bass heavy. One must master to sound as good as possible on all systems.

    ADKOT and a pair of Dre Beats are a winning combination.
