Just wrapping up the half of my review for the velour pads, I'll likely have it finished by Sunday, but I'm also adding a section for the leather pads, so next Sunday I should have a full write up. I think I've found a flaw though, which I can not say that I've experienced in any headphone. The mids are rather forward and I find that they sometimes cover up the midbass. I imagine that it's due to the forward mids and neutral bass. 
 The problem is that you guys are clogging up a thread based on one guys measurements which can't even be compared to known headphones. The measurements are worthless without a known base. Give it a rest for a bit because you're all arguing about "what ifs" and making assumptions based on one chart. Take a minute to relax, it's just a headphone anyway. If you don't like it then you don't have to buy it. Heck Oppo has a 30 day policy, how about listening instead of looking...
 I can't comment on them for comparison, sorry.
I know I've posted impressions so far, and I hope others chime in, but so far I find that Jazz and EDM work really well with these. 
Now for those of you wondering about the highs, they aren't as forward as I initially thought. I'm listening to Pink Floyd's Money which has a semi-forward saxophone and electric guitar solo, nothing reach extremely high, but I feel that they aren't as forward as I would like. Keep in mind I love bright headphones though. The guitar and saxophone are very clean, prominent, and easily discerned/well textured, but they don't sparkle.    Edit: Keep in mind this is with the...
 I'm 26. My quick impressions of the PM-1 have been that the bass feels weighty, controlled, and well-extended. The texture and detail is fantastic on the PM-1 for the bass. The mids are slightly forward with a warm and full natural sound. Listening to Portishead's Glory Box the vocals are incredibly satisfying. Hell, the entire song is perfect for the genre. Highs are nicely controlled in my brief listenings to horns and such. I fired up Steely Dan's Aja album for my...
 You're talking science that I'm not well versed in. I know that the PM-1 sound excellent in my listening. You can look at graphs or take my opinion. Either way you're never going to know until you listen to them yourself. How about we keep speculations based on a graph that we have no real basis of comparison out of here though? Is that okay? Until Tyll or someone measures them with comparisons to other headphones with graphs that we're adjusted to then we're just...
I mean if you guys want to spend $400 on the cable, go for it.
 I'll have a review in less than 3 weeks. I'm a beta tester though so take that as you will. Edit: One last thought. I understand why people like graphs, but they only tell one side of the story. The M50 measure very well in CSD plots as well as frequency response, but to my ears they sound congested and bloated. 
 I understand your view point on giving free things a positive review, but on the other hand if I were to put out a positive review on a mediocre product wouldn't that hurt my credibility? I try to shine the light on the good of every headphone that I review, but every headphones has it's positives even if they aren't great. I make sure to also highlight the poor qualities of a headphone also. I feel that if I spent money on a headphone I'd be more inclined to justify my...
