IEMs vs over ear headphones = less person to person variability?

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    Regarding the person to person variablity of frequency response with IEMs - the seal and ear canal shape play a bigger role with IEMs, so the sound translation can differ a lot from person to person. This is the reason why we didn’t include IEMs in Reference for such a long time, and also why we decided to reject them for the individual calibration service.
