Are they linear?


Nov 15, 2021
they can be linear depending if you want to change out the cable.... with the cable that it comes with its V shaped.... I put a very thin cable on them and they are very linear now....

You just proved my point that cables matter. Length, shielding, and materials all play a factor in changing the freq. in a cable. You could simply prove it to yourself with a mic, and a pair of headphones. You're an engineer, right? Measuring a freq. curve should be in your wheel house. Or if you don't have the equipment you could always look online for measurements. The info is out there. Even usb cables can effect the sound of a DAC. Seeing as they're actually analog cables that parse freq. for 1's and 0's. Every analog cable will sound slightly different. Not being better or worse. It comes down to personal preference. But if you think a shoelace wrapped in tinfoil is going to be good enough for you, than to each is own.

No, you're not an engineer. Engineers own these things called "Microphones". Doing a "special" test doesn't require "highly specialized equipment". It simply requires 1 mic, 1 headphone, 1 interface, muiltiple headphone cords for said headphone, and a freq. sweep which you could easily find on YouTube or you could make your own with free software. Now who the hell said you had to pay a lot of money on headphone cables? Did I? I don't remember that at all. Oh, and just so you know Mr. Engineer. Headphone cables don't carry 1's and 0's. They're analog cables. What headphone uses toslink? Purely digital cables (toslink) are all the same. Maybe that's where you're confused. In that one instance, it would work or it won't. The quality would be the same, but that's not what we're talking about. The reason cables matter for headphones is because they're analog. Various freq. travel down the cable and not all freq. travel at the same speed. Just like the speed of sound changes through water, it changes differently through different materials. Resistance isn't the only factor. As I have explained earlier. You know what's funny. When you learn to be an engineer, you learn the physics of sound. You learn that everything plays a role with signal flow. No one spends 100 grand for a console just to spend 2 bucks on cables. That's ridiculous! And MOST IMPORTANTLY!!! No engineer thinks 1's and 0's goes through a headphone cable. WTF!!!
