There's always been one difficulty when shopping for loudspeakers online: you can't tell how they sound.
Until now. We're proud to introduce our comparator that lets you hear the sound signature between loudspeakers.
This comparator has been optimized for Google Chrome.
This comparator should only be used with a pair of good quality headphones.
We recommend using the Sennheiser HD 560S for their flat frequency response.
All loudspeakers are matched to 85 dB at 1 kHz using a RadioShack 33-2055 sound level meter.
The microphone we use is the Zoom H1n that we calibrated for a flat frequency response.

Our comparator gives you a sense of the sonic differences but performance in the real world is affected by the acoustics of your room, your choice of electronic components and your source material. We still believe that the standard for auditioning loudspeakers is hearing them in our store or even better, your own environment.
