Quote from: mahood on October 30, 2008, 01:45:55all in all, what's so strange is that it's some sort of a reverse process : because i have discovered music --- and good production too --- on awful devices, that could only give you an indication of the sound this music could produce on better equipments, which took me years to acquire, but each time it was worth it. and still, on the worst player, you could have some idea of the sound.then i first heard the only one on my laptop speakers, and thought : oh, this seems OK (whatever i think of the song per se) --- it was only when i put it on my audio system that it started to sound awful.reverse process as i said, because i naively thought this was supposed to go the other way.

Quote from: japanesebaby on October 31, 2008, 20:20:35what is really saddening and alarming these days is to read the internet and see people advicing each other how to listen to this "new music". if someone says it sounds bad there's always someone telling him/her to try listen to it with poorer equipment, under poorer listening conditions. people are honestly encouraging each other to stop looking for ideal, enjoyable listening conditions. people are encouraging each other to only stick to some crappy ipod headphones or computer speakers or car stereos and saying "it's not that bad if you listen to it that way". "it doesn't sound so bad when you have all kinds of background noise there" - just like everything was meant only for your i-pod in the rush our subway. hey wtf??
