I really enjoy reading @crinacle's reviews on his own website :) (I wonder if he'd even get away with posting them on headfi?!) He really doesn't hold back if there's something he doesn't like, but unlike certain profanity-riddled sanctimonious YouTube reviewers that I won't mention by name, he's thoughtful, knowledgable and articulate with his work. Great job buddy. Keep it up!

Would love Crin to do a graph on the 7Hz i99 as well ...

Rare Head-Fi update befitting of the occasion...

Cool rig. What does this mean in terms of consistency when comparing to your considerable back catalogue of measurements then? If I understand correctly (and there’s every chance I don’t) then comparisons of current measurements and anything measured on this shiny new rig will not be directly comparable even with the best will in the world. Am I understanding correctly? (It’s not a criticism by the way, a better rig will help in the long term, I’m sure)

I addressed this in the article. Basically, IEM measurements will continue to be on the old rig (or at the very most, on both rigs). Headphone measurements aren't very comparable to IEM measurements anyways even with same occluded-ear simulator used, as evident in the different target curves required for both.

Ah, somehow completely missed that - too busy looking at pretty pictures! Sorry about that.
Thanks for the info though - looking forward to seeing some more full-size can measurements on the site

I prefer that way and I used to your IEC711 and moreover i built my rig and calibrated to match your measurement for easier comparison.

Unless you are willing to replace all the database but that really hassle progress while you need to measure over ear headphones in meantime.

Considering the age of some of the stuff he's measured it's close to impossible to rebuild a database like that tbh. I think the value of most of the graphs isn't the specific graph itself but the fact that you can compare it to others that have been measured with consistent gear and methodology
