No Complains here. Still a trusted reviewer for me...
You can both disagree with a given assessment and trust a reviewer bro

For example I find the Noir to be a pretty decent improvement over the Fourte, @crinacle commented the opposite

I still love the methodology with which the list is being maintained, and I find many of the other assessments to be in line with what I have listened to myself

I did agree & then disagree w the gentleman re: my 1670ss. Upon my 100th test album, I found his assessment as spot on. But I love my 1670 for the bass & degree of realism as well as the huge staging, holographic, too - I just apgraded the cables. Gone are the metallic & harsh treble...

Thanks for the measurements. How did you go about taking the measurements of AirPods Pro? Same as that website with blue tacts on the two sensor spots? I see differences with different measurements, and I'm starting to wonder if there's possible variance from unit to unit? I know the measurements reflect characteristics of different rigs, but thinking there might be variations in the samples. One AirPod Pro sound warmer than another to me.

Thank you for showing sample measurements so that we can know how consistent the companies can be with their builds.

The AirPods Pro will continue to play as long as you have one channel in a real ear. So when I'm measuring the left channel, I put the right in my ear and vice versa.

Heavymetal Hallelujah measured the effect of the APP's "dynamic EQ" so you can just refer to that. As for my measurements, it is performed without any blockage of the front vents.
