Well, for my 2 cents worth, I like a flat response from low to high. That is what their voice sounds .like in person. Now for contesting, who cares.

Indeed, "broadcast quality" emphasizes
the low frequencies. That's why it's so hard to understand speech
on your car radio when it's noisy. It helps a lot to just turn
down the bass.

You are so correct. I have attended several talks given by Bob
Heil regarding the useful audio spectrum that we should use in our
transmitters. He admits that any energy below 400 Hz is just
energy lost. I have set my K3s to attenuate the first three
segments of the TX EQ as much a possible.
I talk to many folks on SSB that show the majority of their TX
energy between 0 and 1000 Hz and they sound like they are in a
barrel and are difficult to understand unless the conditions are
exceptional. They say they want broadcast quality audio. Clearly
they have not idea what they sound like at the receiving end and
resist any suggestions.
