    I just went through a lot of setting up my headphones and brought my roommate in to test them out. After Istarted playing some music for him he laughed and said "haha you're playing them through the speakers". Then he went to take the headphones off and his mind was blown when it was the headphones.

    One of nature’s greatest wonders is the ability of the human ear to distinguish among the millions of sounds around us. If for any reason your ears are prevented from vibrating either because they have some physical defect or because the phonograph equipment is of low fidelity. Sound quality will be quite different from normal. Lets investigate what causes sound. Each sound has a distinctive pitch loudness and quality. Low frequency tones seem lower pitched when played very loudly.
