The photos are from this post where Jude posted some impressions of the new version.

 

I kind of assumed you already saw it, since you were the first person to comment on it. :p

It's not about the linear progression of X difference in cost making something X times better. It's about the difference in cost being worth it to you.

 

It is or it isn't. We pay for that difference or we don't.

 

That's all there is to it :¬)

Concerning bass response of electrostats versus planar magnetics...look how close they actually are!

 

SR-009

SR-207

AB-1266

HE-6

LCD-2

LCD-3

LCD-X

Granted, there are differences in technology, and even with EQ, there are some things 'stats just can't do. But as far as stock tuning goes, there isn't as much difference in the frequency response as it may seem.

In my experience I have realised, free response only gives you a 30%understanding of what the sound will be. Doesn't give you the whole picture.

i am always amazed that people trust more measurement than their own  ears in music and sound....its not about science its about beauty.....for you :wink_face:

Yes, yes...obviously that's not the whole picture, but the measurements do correlate to the sound.

 

I mentioned in another thread that someday I want to do a super-review of tons of headphones, except after they have all been equalized to be equally as close to neutral as possible. :D I feel that would give a clearer idea of the real differences between the headphones instead of merely the differences between stock tunings.

the difference between headphones is ultimately and at last only in  "your ears" and brain... measurement is only an abstraction......and yes  you may " correlate" the mesurement with your experience....sure....:beerchug: i am ok with that ...

I almost always have an energy drink or soda at the beginning of a listening session. It's much more intense that way.

watches are "essentially" time pieces actually
and we were referring to alcohol wink.gif

Most (or all) of the differences between headphones are objective and can be measured. Our perception of the sound waves is the only thing that is subjective.

Since we have so many other devices that can tell time, wearing a watch is more jewelry than timepiece nowadays. People don't buy expensive watches because they need to spend that much to tell what time it is; they buy them because they look nice or have fancy features.

I listened through two hours or so of classical music the other day. Stuff I've heard since I was a kid...yet I can't for the life of me identify many of them by name.

 

Listening to melodic death metal / melodic groove metal / metalcore at the moment. \m/

@muisc alchemist - the function of a watch is to keep time whether it is expensive, fashionable or not

Of course, but the context is comparing a cheap watch to an expensive one, in which case it would not be just for telling time, but also to look nice, etc.

 

It's tantamount to calling an unused car on a lawn essentially a lawn ornament. It doesn't cease to be a car. That is not the point.

thought the context was folks not comprehending other folks interests and the amount of money they spend on them with luxury watches being one example
