That's a shame. I think at the price they sell something like that is a very nice personal touch.

Even sennheiser no longer send out HD800 certificate like they use to. They now only send you a PDF copy, good cost cutting for them.

Considering their margin is very small. I just looked up their revenue and profit. They turn over over 700 million last year but their net profit is only like 37-38 million.

Why can't both makers have something on their website where you can put in your serial number and then receive the chart that way?

 

I assume they are measuring the headphones anyways in their QA departments, they may as well upload it.

Recently a fellow got his EQ by requesting it from Audeze. Don't know how much complaining was involved but makes me think all you have to do is ask.

Yup, just need to ask, they will email you the chart.

I'm also fairly certain the HD-800 chart is only showing deviation from their reference measurement. It could be taken as entirely misleading if one was to believe the measurement shows the frequency response, raw or compensated. It's basically just showing any dB higher or lower than the reference curve measurement.

That's basically what Audeze does with the LCD3 charts now.  Just make a request via the support site and the FR charts are emailed to you.  The last two I requested arrived within a few hours.

The bigger problem with the HD-800 chart is that it's so heavily smoothed, it's virtually meaningless.  It appears to use 1/3 octave smoothing which is going to fail to show any significant peaks and/or dips.  To get any kind of realistic view of FR, 1/12th Octave smoothing should be the minimum used.

 

Not saying they exist in the HD-800s, but you can't tell from the FR charts supplied.
