Does the Headphone's Frequency Response Change The Timbre When Used As Microphones

As apart of a university project I used headphones as a microphone to record
instruments as samples for a sonic pallet. I did not have enough time to acquire
other headphones than the ones provided or personally owned. So I'm wondering
if anyone has experience using headphones as microphones; if so does the
frequency response change the audio's timbre drastically or not.

My assumption would be that if the headphone is tailored towards a scooped mid
and fizzled top for example. It would record in the same way. Just curious if that
is true.


Cheers,
