    You are so not paying attention. It was mastered for vinyl, not ipods, so it was mastered quieter. That's mastered, which we've established is a word which you do not understand. It's recorded the same way modern music is: with microphones which have not become "louder" in the past 40 years.

    Weird that you mention the BX5's.. My wife got me a pair for Christmas but they gave me ear fatigue after 10 or 15 minutes even at sub nominal volumes - I swapped them back for a pair of Tapco S8's which I like alot.
    My friend said the M-Audio doesn't fatigue his ears for hours so maybe it's just me..

    Ears are different.:) To be fair, though, the Tapcos cost about $100 more than the M-Audios. But, $100 is worth no ear fatigue especially when listening to music is your livelihood.

    No doubt.. Back the day they used to have some super high pitched ringing in jewelry stores that bugged my ears out but nobody else seemed to hear (security system?). I can hear dog whistles loud and clear as well - instant headache..

    I hear you. I almost think it sounds logical, even. But at this point I'm just following through in Gloat fashion.

    Creeping-Cruds and avvie, thnx for the lessons. It's great to actually hear somebody who knows about music dynamics in music recording. If I have further questions, (which i'm sure i do) don't mind my asking you guys.
