Do you ever have one of those days when a modest rig sounds just fabulous?
I am working remotely right now and have been bringing my HD600s and a Fulla3 with me. For whatever reason, when I put them on today everything sounds really amazing…like shockingly good. Space, imaging, tonality, fun. Super fun - and from Spotify to boot.
On other days, when I listen to this combo, it sounds pretty good but not like today.
The only thing I can think of is that yesterday I forgot my stuff and was stuck with a full day of listening to a shitty pair of “Edit Suite” HD477s out of the 1/8" monitor jack.
I wonder if moving from rig to rig leaves a memorable acoustic impression that my brain expects the next time headphones go on.
I will test my theory this evening when I go back to my studio and listen to my RME>EAR+ HD> HD650Ms.
