I added that while you poLook up. added some while you were posting. You should understand this stuff if you're going to get technical. Jerry also talked about having to change the crossovers points once everything got phased up with the new circuit etc because he was getting added output (lack of cancellation) at transitions.
Just go to their web site and look at the phase curve under freqphase. Time aligned systems with phase shifting crossovers don't look flat. So does export mean that Spiral Ear may sell into the US. Maybe the additional cost is to cover the problems he previously experienced.
It actually takes both into account. How well and important will be up to the listener.
I think you're referring to the normal front opening. Venting the backwave through the front would cause loads of cancellation.
I'm not impressed and it looks like that woofer isn't rear vented. Hard to make low bass with restricted excursion. Phase doesn't see wrong from those graphs vs overall response. Just not very successful looking for all the effort and seemingly good build. It's a difficult task but not brain surgery for someone with reasonable resources and ears. If you're going to use 2 BAs in parallel over most of it's range, why not find 2 with more dissimilar curves or resonance...
I see what your saying but I do disagree. No one argued against folks ultimately paying for the sound, like any product. Point was about what it took to create that particular sound. Success is always in ear of the beholder and I'm pretty sure most will feel the Layla better than the Angie. I may have as well under different circumstances. I just felt the Angie could compete with anything at any price depending on preference. I'm sure JHA could easily live with selling...
Sounds like a phase issue between the woofer and low BA. Someone should try inverting the woofer for kicks and giggles. For instance, the ED-29689 has negative pressure with positive voltage at it pos. terminal (phase inverted). Obviously you would think this is compensated for in the design phase but you never know what happens in early production runs. I once had an early production 3 way speaker that used 12/octave networks (this likely uses 6) and all the drivers were...
  This is exactly the same argument that was leveled at AK when they started out. Many never availed themselves of AK goodness due to rationalizations like this. The Layla is in the price range of 'if you have to ask....." and with 4 more custom drivers, titanium tubes, likely longer build time and I'm sure some other tweaks, it's likely actually significantly more costly to make and those costs never get passed on without associated margins. It's business and these...
 Check my jh5 reference below. Better for who? Better at what? If the Angie competes with a K10 and the Layla too expensive, what difference does it make in terms of my response? When I say competes, I mean by individual preference. I never said the Layla wasn't as good or not better even though the Angie suited me on a very short listen. Another DAP or adjustment may have changed that. The Layla had greater scale and for most that's very important in an IEM. Not the most...
Just too bulky for me but I cold see it if I had to travel a lot etc. The AKs are a pleasure to use and that doesn't change with the glove. Nice that no additional tos cable is involved as well.
