Jades, HiFiMan, HE Audio or not, it's really the subtle sentiment behind this "petition" that matters. It wouldn't bad a thing for anyone (Sennheiser, HiFiMan, Audeze, Koss, etc.) to know that people do want more 'stats than just those made by STAX. I'm not a huge fan of the tonal balance of the $5000 009 myself. STAX doesn't make the 007mk1 anymore. The STAX customer service quality and repair costs are horrendous to anyone outside of Japan. The more 'stat headphone choices, the better.
The reason this specific topic is directed toward HiFiMan is that I heard rumors they were working on a new 'stat of better build quality, and that Fang is highly involved in the HF community. He's certainly taken his punches and responded well to people's concerns. I could have petitioned that STAX bring the mk1 back, but honestly, I don't think STAX gives a rat's ass.
