Re: A new headphone query from a new member

Dear Samu

The question of a flat frequency response of a headphone is not as
unequivocal as you might like. Do you want a flat frequency
response from voltage at the terminals to pressure at the eardrum?
Or do you want the response to the eardrum to be similar to the
response from an ideal loudspeaker in a room? Maybe you would like
to read our article about the issue in Journal of Audio
Engineering Society (Henrik Møller, Clemen Boje Jensen, Dorte
Hammershøi, Michael Friis Sørensen: "Design criteria for
headphones", JAES Vol. 43, No. 4, April 1995, pp. 218-232).

Best regards,

Henrik Møller
