I think this is why I use Sonarworks. I find that with it engaged the tonal balance of my monitors is close enough to my headphones that I don't feel the need to reach for the EQ when toggling between them. Without it, there's a different emphasis in the highs that would have me second guessing myself a bit.CS70 wrote:With the usual color analogy, all glasses will alter the whites a little bit, but what's important is that yellows stay yellowish and the reds stay reddish and if there's a hue change between two reds, the relative difference is preserved. In these conditions, the precise yellow and reds become less important (so long they don't become blues and greens!), because human perception is based much more on relative differences than absolute values.
If Sonarworks and similar brings different headphones a bit closer in that respect, it can become easier for many not to have to re-adapt as much as otherwise.
I could learn it, but it's easier for me not to have to.
But I always mix in the same room with the same kit. For more peregrinetic people this won't be the case.
