      • if ns10s were once consumer speakers in the 80s that became studio monitors, why aren’t we doing our mixes on mp3 speakers today?

        • Oh but they do! For the online releases at least. (*)

          (*) I’m very sure. At least they insisted on playing all our mixes through crappy car speakers in the 90’s.
          Can’t imagine engineers have become less obsessive since then.

        • I check my mixes on iPod earbuds and my phone speaker for comparison purposes, and I know a lot of others who do similar things. Flat response monitors can only get you so far

  1. Do these have Lightning connectors? How does the larger one work with n iPad, since the other one has something like a dock?

    I don’t get it.

    • Asking a gear snob to be rational is like asking a puppy not to piss on the floor. You can say it all you like, but eventually you’re going to have to roll up a newspaper and smack them on the nose to make your point
