Ultima and headphones: Flat, studio, or regular


#1

@SaintSovereign and @Fire

I have a pair of studio headphones, a pair of flat response headphones, and a pair of $20 headphones.

Is there any advantage to listening to Ultima programs with the studio or flat response headphones vs the $20 pair?

When it’s a choice of flat response vs studio, is one better than the other for Ultima?

Depends on what the studio headphones are vs the flat response. I’d go with the flat response, unless they’re really cheap.

I can be more specific: AKG K240 Studio and Sennheiser HD 280 Pro. Could one of these be better than the other?

I have both of these – I’d go with the HD 280 Pro. The AKG K240 kills off the low end a bit too much. I use them for critical listening sessions.
