The hobby being subjective, It's not even desired by many to listen as intended by Artist. What all one desires is to listen in one's preferred colour.Colour of music is a very personal preference and Fletcher Munson curves with its later enhancements prove that each ear hears the same music differently.
Trying to hear it as the original artist/Sound music director intended is the nirvana most of us strive for , within limitations of rooms/content and budgets.
Of course..anyone can choose to ( and many do) enjoy music out of the standard earphones that one with phones itself. The idea of our hobby is to see how much more we can coax out of the music by means of components, acoustics and tweaks and thats why we visit forums ie to learn what more can be done to better it.
