Simply an outstanding effort, Chinsettawong!   Thank you for sending your marvelous headphones in for measurement. I wouldn't have believed it had I not done the measurements myself.   Very, very nice!!!   http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/extraordinary-diy-electrostatic-headphones-chinsettawong
Great thread! Thank you.   Probably worth mentioning the issues related to inattentional blindness caused by headphones.    People get killed every month by walking out in front of trains with headphones on.   That's not to mention cars.    Please be aware of the danger of walking around with headphones on and not paying attention to your surroundings.   Walk safe!
   I absolutely agree with you 100%, and I thought about that as I wrote the post.  The problem is, teenagers, it seems to me, while they're quite likely to go a bit manic in their posting, they're also somewhat likely to take advice when given. The "adults" you speak of are probably quite a bit less likely to take the advice, so I didn't bother.
^^^Nice.   And I totally agree about these headphone being extremely attractive sonically...but not quite exactly knowing why.   I ended up thinking it had to do with the dynamic focus...for lack of a better word.
 Yes, indeed, I've made mistakes on measurements...THD+noise is particularly problematic. And thanks, Amos, I do feel the need to continue to improve my work.  It's defiantly nice when people agree with my assessments, I do try to write reviews in such a way that even when people's preferences don't align with mine the information remains meaningful.But it's also VERY important that people realize I'm just one dude with an opinion and contrary opinions may be just as...
 I had the great pleasure of visiting the Audeze factory last Monday after the Newport show to get schooled on planar magnetic design topologies by their lead researcher. It was fascinating. I will be doing another "How Planarmagnetic Headphones Work" article to expand on some of the various configurations work. 
 I think it's ear pad resonance, and I do think it's a real measurement, but it still perplexes me. I've checked the calibration a number of times...al looks good. 
 Neither do I....but there it is.
You bet, always do youtubes for headphone reviews.
 Couldn't quite finish it up before Newport.  I'll post it after I finish the Newport show reports. Don't want it to get buried by them. Early next week, I reckon.
