Yes, the violin has harmonics that extend into the top of our threshold of hearing. I would be curious, again, to see a comparison of the measurements of the SR-007 and SR-009 from the SRM-T1, SRM-717, KGSSHV, BHSE, ECE, et alia. Realistically I'm only concerned about the linear and nonlinear performance above 1KHz as the higher registers have been my only pain point with the KGSSHV. Such would help me better understand what I perceive. It's quite possible the Omega off...
I don't just find the HD 800 bright, I find it intolerable. The Mk1 on the KGSSHV is very good. I never suggested it being bright. Yes, the SR-009 isn't as bad as the HD 800. It doesn't have to be bright -- I've heard it rather agreeable sometimes. Thanks for that counterpoint. Have you tried the SR-009 on, say, the EC Electra?
Indeed, that's well stated. I personally find even the Omega to be rather strident on the KGSSHV. It is not to the point of being harsh, but audibly annoying. That's just for me personally. To frame this into context, I'm a rather young lad with treble sensitivity who finds the stock HD 800 intolerable. To make my admittedly flippant prior remark (re: generation gaps) sound a little more reasonable, I don't know of a gentleman who enjoys the SR-009 + KGSSHV pairing that's...
Oh, please. Even dude_500 remarked on the perceived brightness of the one of the KG designs with the SR-009, and he's designed some very well-voiced DIY-statics.It's not an uncommon sentiment, but given the vitriolic reflexes that tend to be the order of the day when such estimations are expressed, it's certainly an "unpopular" one. The defensive reflex is no less silly than the facetious nature of my remark, albeit in a different way.The KG designs are best suited to the...
I agree. I don't understand how people cope with KG designs on the SR-009 unless they have older and/or less treble-sensitive ears. It's really quite the elephant in the room IMHO.
Sensitivity to spikes and troughs varies from individual-to-individual. I am not very sensitive to 10KHz emphasis (like in beyerdynamic DT 880s) mostly due to ear gain, but am quite sensitive to 6KHz activity.   I think midrange would greatly affect genre versatility if it is "off". I personally found the TH600s unacceptable with live recordings.   My D2000s sounded closer to "correct" to my ears from either my desktop setup or the headphone output of my Galaxy Note 2.
These pads come from the TH600 and by most accounts are identical to the pads employed in the TH900. They are made of eggshell protein leather and are incredibly lightweight and comfortable. They are in great condition, with minimal usage and were pulled from the pair of TH600s I sold recently. They do not include the plastic locking ring that secures the pad to Denon/Fostex headphones, but I can confirm these are compatible with the existing locking rings on the Denon...

Everyone wants giant killers, but in truly critical listening an HD 800 will pull away from a KSC-75 in a matter of seconds.   Different headphones don't just suit different budgets, but different applications. The highest-end headphones are best suited for critical listening. By critical listening I mean it as an exclusive activity -- no simultaneous web browsing, no reading, nothing but just queueing an album and listening.   I'm more than comfortable with a pair of...
I won't be able to make it this weekend.    Just moved last month and still have a bunch of stuff to work over.   Looks like I'm missing out on some good times. Hopefully I'll see some of you at the July meet.
