Headphones as a nearfiled listening source?!...


It just happened and I`m impressed... prolly it was due to "
Psycho acoustics/Epiphany moment", tho... :)

Which headphones?

Near-field listening is done on speakers - studio monitors at a close distance from your ears.

Headphones can provide great insight, but a top-flight pair of speakers will typically match or surpass them.

Depends on the headphones in question. Top flight headphones will blow away even the most expensive speaker for detail.I have never heard speakers resolve better than them.

Yeah, no kidding. 
Prolly was due to the fact that you can’t get more near field than headphones.  Duh.
