here's an idea that may improve HIFIMAN
Its a super thin (able to be manufactured down to a one-atom thick sheet) conductor that would be absolutely perfect for planar-magnetic technology. It's highly conductive, too.
I imagine many headphone companies will be doing research on this because of its intrinsically superior performance when it comes to planar/electrostatic technology.
make more comfortable velour pads! a la beyer-dynamic? those things are like clouds
P.S. I've been waiting on my HE-400 replacements for over a month now, any idea when they will start sending them out?
EDIT: it seems like the last few comments had similar waiting experiences for their replacements, but finally recieved htem. They too said they would be including velour pads with mine. I emailed "Mrs T" about a week and a half ago, and she said they would be sent out sometime this week (now it's friday), so I emailed her again and she has not responded. any info helps! thanks
