The idea behind flat frequency response in audio monitoring is quite simple. When you are designing audio effects, creating music or mixing your tracks you must have tools that helps you achieve results that transfer good across all sound systems.
Your audio/music consumers have all kinds od sound systems. From standard hi fi stereo, earbuds on the go, smart phones, headphones for gaming or office, surround systems, car audio and so on and on...
If you want to make sure that your music is reproduced the way you want you have to create and mix it on a system that is flat in frequency response. The system must have no boosts or cuts in the response graph. Yes, it's not possible to have a 100% flat response but the technology availabe can get very close to that. When you mix your work on a flat system you can trust that it will sound as good as possible (or as planned) on any system.
In case you mix on a "coloured" monitoring system . For example Beats headphones that tend to have a bass boost (low frequency boost), you will mix the kick drum, bass guitars, even vocals in a way to sound great on that headphones. When you transfer the song to another system, let's say in car audio or other less bass heavy headphones, your song will sound thin, light, with no bottom. That's because the monitoring system added low frequencies. This goes the other way to. So any dip or boost in frequency response of your monitoring system will make your mixing very difficult and transfer badly across devices.
OLLO wooden headphones are designed with flat response in mind from the start. The shape of the earcups is fully rounded that makes all vibrations bounce and cancel in linear style. The speaker was carefully selected and tested to fit the promise of flat response. OLLO headphones for mixing audio are a must have in the studio, home studio or multimedia design agency.
There's a lot of debate that you can't mix on headphones. Let me be very clear. There is no system on planet that is perfect for mixing. The fact that 70% OF ALL MUSIC IS LISTENED TO ON HEADPHONES makes it more than logical to mix your songs on HEADPHONES FIRST and than just check for standard stereo setup.
That's great news for home studio owners, multimedia professionals and DIY guys. Now you don't have to own a studio in classic definition. No special room, no special acoustic treatment, no expensive gear. You can do a better job on a lap top with OLLO monitoring system than a million dollar studio could 10 years ago. YOU HAVE ALL THE POWER YOU NEED TO CREATE PROFESSIONAL MIX if you have a lap top with any DAW software and headphones for mixing audio - for example OLLO wooden headphones HPS1 and BSE.
