If you had a lot of mess at 100hz and below, it would show up on RMS meters and your loudness would be dead giveaway. There’s also a way ns10s sound when the lows are clogged. I think they are a tool in the process. I’ve never heard anyone say they were the ultimate mixing monitors. Respect to you though because I could barely formulate a full sentence when you mixed that record

It sounds far better than any other monitors I've ever played that CD on. So...you could have a huge slog of muddy crap down below 100hz and if you mixed only on these, you wouldn't know it was there ( unless you are one of those hard to believe mixers who claim they can judge the bass by watching how much the woofers move?) I know many of you claim to do it but how could anyone possibly rely on NS10s alone for mixing?
