I didn't understand the head and tail of what you just wrote..Wachara doesn't measure his builds from what I know. innerfidelity measured his headphones for the first time and praised them comparing them to the sr009. he uses his ear to get where he is and the going is pretty darn good!!
You can make a headphone close to the sr009 in response with the PCB method I have detailed above.You can check DIY e-stat headphones by Wachara Chin at inner fidelity that measure as good or slightly better and cost less than $500 to make!!Cheers,~A
I have heard a KGSSHV..for compatibility read about pro-bias and normal biasI am.not aware of sr 717 biasing structure to comment on it
Why don't you make an E-stat headphone driver and then buy an srd adapter/charger from stax or used? This is probably the most rewarding of any route you plan to undertake!! Though it looks hard it is not all that tough!! Single sided PCBs cut with CNC machines with and 0.5 mm PCB spacer and a tensioned mylar film rubbed with a floor cleaner or PC cleaning anti-static gel.. Paint the stators with non-whitr acrylic.Do try coz its just levels above in satisfaction and you...
 I remember reading a very very old review on some exotic speakers in the 80's over at Stereophile.com where they had segmented the review as reproduction of the dynamic range of the recording(Dynamics), Transient response(Impact), Transparency and Tone(Timber) which lies just around what Vaibhav's first 2 points.  'Pleasant to listen to' is just the most subjective thing because you simply cannot measure subjectivity, at least by the time you do measure it, your likes...
 There is a reason why 'sweet spots' are called that way. As much as there are preferences, a sweet spot for most conventional speakers are not all that wide at 1m from the diaphragm acknowledging the size of the diaphragm and SPL. So practice of mic placement among sound/studio engineers is not all that varied. Soundstage of a recording and Tonality of an instrument in that recording are actually interrelated. Not in proportion but have similar factors like mic placement...
what you quote as coloration in a live concert is whole lot different to that you hear from a headphone. this is because in a live concert you are just stepping up your instrument through a dedicated amp and then keeping up that voltage swing with a 25/70/100volt PA line transformer to multiple loudspeakers. most instruments only cover a small band of the audible frequency range which its amp is designed for. hence a guitar amp is different from a bass guitar amp. while...
The one on timbre ... I just find it absolutely the toughest thing to judge the timbre of some music I hear coz I have not actually heard those instruments straight off from a person playing it in front of me like say a fully free crash ride cymbal, saxophones, trumpets, clarinets and cellos.And even if I hear them, I will still not be able to comment comparably on their timbre reproduced by a headphone and an earphone due to difference in HRTF involved - one is in-ear...
What is your basis for this statement?
 Hmmm, I am fan of TWFK BA models but always find the bass lacking - had 2. The Tpeos Hybrid uses the TWFK while a DD for the bass... sounds kick in the butt to me ;)
