MHOE, I think DavidMahler has made no mystery of the nature of his reviews.
You should consider (and I'm not being glib) writing your version of what David did, but based only on measurement data available--including headphones you haven't heard. That is, using only the data (including for headphones you haven't heard, but have used measurements to form impressions of), write about what the headphones sound like.
But this isn't the thread for it, so you'd have to start another.
That would not make sense as people do not want to read about objective evaluations, they want to decide themselves what to buy based on another's ears and preferences...
I have only discussed with David about HD800 being the most neutral headphones in the world... Maybe the theory is wrong but I cannot see the phone measuring more neutral than Stax 009 for example. I am not saying anything against his personal opinions on prefered sound signature, about having one headphone higher on his list because of this and that etc. I just don't think HD800 are near-to-neutral and this is possible to assess objectively. That's why I am discussing about it.
I do admire HD800 anyway... More then HE-6, LCD-3, T1, D7000, Audio-technicas etc.
