When MD say "bass slam" in the discription, i take it as booming bass on the low end. Is that true? Sorry i'm a novice at reading the frequency response chart.
Not so much "boom" as "impact"... in general, headphone freaks regard booming bass as a bad thing and bass slam as a good thing.
Now, pay attention as more-than-several folks explain that I've got it all wrong ;-)
Boom generally refers to bass that either doesn't stop soon enough or simply overwhelms the other frequencies. Poor tuning or badly constructed cabinets cause this.
"Slam" implies more of a subjective feeling of impact as said above. This usually increases with diaphragm size, possibly simply because more air is moved.
Both are very poorly defined, unscientific terms, like much of the audiophile vocabulary.
Exactly, audiophile vocab is generally subjectively defined. @westwest Something along those lines.
