The speculation behind Redline Monitor
Listening to music on headphones is actually completely different than listening to audio system. While you hearken to audio system, each ears obtain the output of each audio system however in numerous proportions. Your proper ear will hear extra of the appropriate speaker, and the left ear extra of the left. And since the left ear is barely farther away from the appropriate speaker, it hears the appropriate sign a fraction of a second later than the appropriate ear. This time distinction between the ears is without doubt one of the important cues that your mind makes use of to determine the left-to-right place of sounds.
While you hearken to headphones every ear will solely obtain one channel. The sound isn’t combined, and there aren’t any time variations. Briefly: the listening expertise lacks any similarity to pure listening to. Any common headphones person can be conversant in the issues this causes: the stereo picture is misplaced on account of excessive separation of the left and proper channels and has no discernible phantom middle (the non-existent ‘middle speaker’ that vocals typically seem to come back from when listening to audio system). Sound sources are unimaginable to find and, due to the unnatural stereo picture, ear fatigue units in even after brief listening periods.
Redline Monitor makes use of subtle acoustic and psycho-acoustic processing to trick the ear into perceiving the stereo and depth data that’s lacking once you hearken to audio with headphones. It makes mixes sound similar on audio system and headphones, at the least inside the tolerance of the completely different frequency responses of headphones and monitor audio system. (That’s the very best anybody can hope to realize – no two pairs of monitor audio system sound similar both, they usually undoubtedly sound completely different from the audio system in headphones.)
This provides you a conveyable uniform listening setting even in dwelling studios and untreated rooms that’s rivaled solely by a set of fine monitor audio system. Whether or not within the studio or on the street, whether or not on a full-blown studio rig or your pocket book, the stereo picture, tonal steadiness, and sound are similar the place ever you go.
Redline Monitor offers you direct entry to the very best from each worlds. Headphones present element in a method that no audio system can, permitting you to zoom in on even the tiniest particulars. Clicks, room atmosphere, and mushy particulars which can be practically unimaginable to tell apart on audio system are simply revealed on headphones.
