Yes, there are also, for example, harmonic distortions and decay. But I think that >90% of sound quality is actually determined by FR. When it's balanced then other issues (like high THD) become more apparent.

Are you saying that these headphones are bad because they are cheap? :) Maybe they are as good as the summit-fi ones but nobody gives them attention because they are cheap.
