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).
