Whose video?
Oops!  Sorry about that.
Hmm, the open version named "Ether," bringing to mind airiness and access to the cosmos.  The closed version, a trap, confining the sound, encasing you in limited space...call it "Clunch?"   I'm just playin', btw.  I'd like to see a closed top-tier headphone from them as well (not to say their other offerings are slouches).
What a fantastic find.  Thanks!
Yep, it's actually surprising to me how much the volume changes with the impedance.  I expected it to change, but not so drastically.  When comparing, I do make sure I volume match as best I can. Another thing that I find sometimes has a surprising effect is how bass impact is perceived when the rest of the frequency range is altered.  I think that, to some degree, we interpret impact over the whole frequency range and are less adept at singling out bass impact than we'd...
Yeah, for instance, with my NAD Viso HP50, I like it set to 2 ohms best.  I won't claim to have any idea what is most accurate, though.  And there can always be confounding factors.
I don't think it's really possible for you to be "certain" that the balance problem you seem to have with the MHP1000 is common to all of them.  But otherwise this is a really good write-up.  Thanks!  This is one of the headphones I'm interested in, and there is precious little being said about it compared to other flagship headphones.
What I notice with higher impedances and the SE846 is less treble and less clarity overall.
Yes, I can attest to the effect that output impedance has on the sound of the 846.  On the CEntrance HiFi M8, it sounds substantially better when the impedance is switched over to 1 ohm than with the impedance set to 11 ohms.
I agree and disagree with you here.  Female vocals (all vocals really) do sound terrific with the SE846.  And the 'phone sounds truly great across a wide swath of the frequency spectrum.  But up top there seems to me to be something missing.  Of course all of my comments here are "to my ears, with my gear."  When I got the 846, I was stunned that it beat my DT880 not just in quantity of bass but in quality.  Same goes for the midrange as well.  But treble?  It's not even...
