you don't understand how amplifying a planar magnetic headphone works and are making yourself sound like an idiot.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
This is coming from the same guy who said a waterfall plot showed intermodulation distortion. You don't have to be so confrontational!
lol!!! sheddding season now that winter is almost over?
aamzing how sensitive & detailed the HE400s are hahah
http://youtu.be/j77VKw9Kx6U this is pretty good stuff. raven 37 minutes in he shows distortion through waterfall plot. yes he's showing a speaker but the concept is the same
...lool. i can think of hundreds of better ways to spend an hour than watching that vid. like listening to music & getting drunk =P 2min in I was already bored.
and what is resonance
Another type of temporal distortion is resonance. This one is critical. Let's call it time dilation because it stretches the signal out for a longer duration than in the recording, in other words, lengthening the decay, or ringing. Stored energy that is not dissipated as heat is reradiated as unwanted sound. Drivers with poor damping and cabinets that don't completely absorb or block the internal vibrations of the enclosure radiate delayed acoustic energy into the room. This is a major contributor to the perception of, “It doesn't sound live; it sounds like speakers.” It is measured by the cumulative spectral decay, CSD.
