[OFF-TOPIC/USELESS] From: Questions about mp3 quality vs hi-fi system
The worse the better: Deviation from a flat response can unmask artifacts.

That goes against the audiophile saying that the better the equipment, the more "revealing" it is. FWIW, I've felt that music with over-compressed dynamic range was less unpleasant with my flat FR Denon AH-D2000s than with my other, non-flat FR headphones… Not sure what's the science of it, I certainly didn't have THAT expectation when I bought them.
