Sorry, English is not my mother tongue and maybe I didn't use the accurate term.
"Ringing frequencies" maybe ?
You known, that frequency or note that give more energy and pop out from the others ? (take 234Hz in my sample for example. It's the most obvious.)
And yeah, I think it's the same principle that applies also to wood on a stringed instrument or the ring of a snare as you said.
To answer your question, I listened with headphones, speakers and earbuds, in stereo, mono, each track independently of the others or all at the same time. It's the same problem in all configurations...
