It just seems to me like graphene material science researchers attempting to draw more attention (and with that more funding interests) to their fields, more than anything else really.

Now that I agree 100%.

Well, research requires money. Unfortunately, that requires either large business or the government to pony up the funds. They don't take interest unless researchers make noise and show a potential for profit.

It's also possible that the statement was simplified for the general public. I haven't read the actual paper yet.

Either way, looking forward to what it does for future technology.

-.-...

LMFAOOOOOOO

If you're feeling pressure pain at the top of your head after a while, then you must have very little hair. I have a head full of thick hair, which helps to distributes the weight much better. A 100 grams less may take care of that issue for you, but I think limiting the weight of headphones to 400 grams, at the expense of other aspects of design that could contribute to better sound quality, isn't justified for users like myself.


Absolutely !!!!!

Considering there are $20-30 headphones with an incredibly flat response curve (Tyll graphed one recently), response curve is definitely not all it takes. I agree with Jerg, that statement is rather ignorant. Frequency response is just one aspect, and one that many people won't agree with as well all have varying tastes.

Yeah, FR only tells you how loud a certain frequency is, it tells you absolutely nothing about how good that frequency sounds.

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.

AKG Q701, anyone?

No, but I'm sure if the company thought it was worth much more, they'd price it accordingly.
