Lol. $695
+2   regarding what streetdragon said, this is pretty much the reason why i like neutral headphones. i can listen to classical on my AD900 or HF5's and it sounds good, i can listen to rock/metal and it sounds good, i can listen to anything really and it all sounds good.
Here is one of the major problems with dynamic drivers, being that they are cone shaped, different frequency ranges leave the surface of the driver at different times, you also have problems (which you can easily observe by placing your loudspeakers below or above ear level) with higher frequencies "beaming" and being directional. With a flat driver (such as those used in electrostats and planar magnetic), this is mostly eliminated as frequencies radiate from all...
    the only difference i can think of between a dynamic headphone and a electrostatic/planar magnetic headphone is the fact that the drivers in the latter two are nearly flat, maybe it has something to do with phase? attack and decay definitely has something to do with speed, but it's just weird that dynamics seem to have better decay than electrostatics and everyone claims they sound faster/more detailed.   i am officially confused.
I think there is something else going on with electrostatics that has nothing to do with decay. The question is what?
i don't get the whole "mid-fi" thing.
What treble peaks?
Got my ety's back. The sound is totally different on them with the FiiO. It's tighter and more controlled, it's also a bit less trebly, which isn't exact a good thing from a subjective standpoint, but it DOES match the frequency response curve shown on etymotic's site. The amp is apparently doing it's job with them haha.
As in proof i mean "provide evidence to uphold that argument". However, for the most part, i totally agree with you. The purpose of my example is to show that we CAN demonstrate that the XB700 is bassier than the AD700 from an objective viewpoint, and i think it is important to use that kind of objective data as a reference in this hobby, on any equipment. I also think DBT's have a purpose in this hobby. For example if i say that i hear no difference between 320k and...
i personally think beats look stupid and ugly, along with other fashion phones. i just don't get the point of it. it's not clothing and jewelry, its a practical device that's function is to reproduce sound.
