Massive response! Because I have been a lazy arse and haven't gotten up to speed about this yet! Well, we'll see.   Yep! We have close to 50 adults...  Yep! You're on it.   Nah, plague is not the only solution, y' know. And I'd still love to see you now rather than wait until July for that. Or in fact... I can't even make the July meet at all! That's why I'm trying to pull this one together.  Oh no, please don't resort to that... yet.   The list is for all attendees. I...
 Haha, I may pick up an HE-6 to play around with at some point. LFF's Code-X has made me think more about Hifiman's drivers, too... but we'll see. My main qualm with it is that it doesn't play nice with regards to amping. But I think my DIY amp can handle it.  Haha, folks don't seem to want to let go of their positions. This is turning out to be quite a big meet after all!  And I would love to see you there! It's been a while since we last met!  
I would like to echo zero's post and point out a few things: First, the CSD graph's scale is really messed up. Look at the time scale, guys:  The peak ends at 1.07ms. Okay, ya got that, right? Next, let's try... looking at the CSD of... the SR-009:  Look, ma! There are ridges at 4KHz, 6KHz, 8KHz, and 9.5KHz that all got further than 1ms!!! And guess what? The Verb decay ends at 2.6ms at 200Hz. The SR-009 keeps decaying at 1KHz past 4ms!!! If I didn't know better, I'd say...
 Welcome! I'm sure we can use the extra gears.   Oh man, this is looking more and more like a real CanJam after-party. We're getting most of CanJam stuffs but in a more intimate and small-scale settings. Awesome! (coffee with a dash of cream in my glass, hahaha)  Sounds great! Hope I'll get to see you there! 
@runeight, my order is placed, good sir. I'm probably somewhere after the first 100 units. Haha... beaten to the punch by other folks.   But this was an unbelievable price. I didn't think you'd take my suggestion to heart, so... you can have the $600 now. I'm HAPPY to give you that much. Carbon truly deserves it.    
Well, I'm trying to tell you that his observations are too localized to a few headphones that specifically exhibit the problem, and he's making sweeping universal statements out of it. I think he's only seeing half of the truth, but he's stating it as a whole. If I have to be nice, he's mistaken about his hypothesis that the dip at 7.5KHz is desirable. And that's just that. We can keep pulling graphs of headphones, but... anyway, here's one that doesn't exhibit the problem...
His Stax is the SR-Lambda, which also has a peak at 8KHz. Here's a graph for it (made by purrin):  Some variations of the HD650 also has a peak at 9-10KHz, that would make the 8KHz region stand out as well:http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/SennheiserHD650.pdf
Nope. If you read the first post carefully, the poster mentioned that someone experienced a peak at 7.5KHz, which he attributed to the ear canal, ear drum interacting with the transducer. But that's not the actual case. The headphone used was the Etymotic ER4S. If it's anything like the Etymotic ER4PT, which Tyll also measured, then you'll find that Tyll's graph does note a huge spike at 8KHz:http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/EtymoticER4PT.pdf That is to say... what he...
 I didn't want to post this yet, but here's a pre-fazor LCD headphone with its damping structure altered slightly...   The same thing can't be achieved with the fazor models because there is barely any room left after the fazors to put anything else in. So at least from a modding/damping perspective, the non-fazor models are better, yeah. And personally, I think LCD-3F sounds godawful. Edit: added CSD graphs in case anyone thinks there is any funny business going on. Also...
 It's done.Welcome!
