Justice for all actually sounds great on my TH-600
No one can prove you wrong when we are speaking cables as it's about beliefs anyway
That is very unprofessional and quite shocking IMO. I hope they have handled the problem accordingly, though. It should be quite easy to measure whether there's an appropriate resistor on the bias output if you know some basic electronics theory, however. And the specs of your DMM
How is that so with such a small seperation between stator-diaphragm? One would expect problems with stability, corona discharge, collapsing diaphragms and all that lovely stuff because of the very high electric field. Must yield a high sensitivity, however.
I am no electronic experts, but I do know a little about physics. The biggest problem with high capacitance in your 'stat is that it requires the amp to deliver significant current at high voltage swings, high frequencies. I have not done the calculations, but for most amps driving a single Stax headphone, playing music, I honestly do not think current delivery will be a general issue, though it certainly could be in some cases. The best way to reduce cable capacitance is...
How does the wee damage headphones? Is the bias supply resistor very low value or something?
I guess, I would prefer a logical explanation. I don't like to trust other people's ears when I don't have to, but it isn't like I'm going to make my own 'stats any time soon.   I'm just saying that from a theoretical stand point it might be better to look into optimizing the cable, if capacitance is of concern. Of course, the resistance of the cable won't matter if within reasonable limits. For a Stax headphone the driver capacitance amounts to ~1/5th of the total...
Be worried if you develope buzzing/ringing or other tinnitus like symptoms within the next period of time, else it is probably okay 
Why is that going to make much of a difference, except for slightly higher capacitance?
Just want to say that removing the surplus copper from the stator will reduce the capacitance, though not significantly. The capacitance of the cable is mostly significantly greater than that of the electrostat itself. So don't bother if it is of much trouble
