    Perhaps they should come up with a Headphone Weight, similar concept to what baseball batters use on their bats in the on-deck circle. You could have a five pound headphone that you wear for about 2-3 minutes, then you take it off and put on a 700+gm headphone. In contrast, it feels like an HD600.

    Just to clarify for those interested in making their own balanced cable.
    As I mentioned above, the HEDDphone uses standard mini 4-pin XLR connectors.
    The connector on the headphone is a male and the connector on the cable is a female.

    Well they had too make something small.

    I've heard on another source that the initial batch of 20 HEDDphones have been sold out, along with most of the reserve for a following batch of the same slain for the following week. These are exciting times in the world of hi-fi audio, and there is no doubt in my mind that even if the HEDDphone with its' first-ever VVT AMT transducer headphone technology doesn't please, it will still be ushering in of a new era in headphone audio reproduction.

    There's no DF data specific to this measurement fixture.

    Here's the HEDD Audio HEDDphone versus the Harman AE (Around Ear) / OE (On Ear) Target:

    Thanks! Exactly what I think the thread was looking for.

    I still think a database of measurements is more useful, but it's certainly a start.

    Yes, the initial batch of 20 have been sold out.

    So only one week after, they will be shipping out another batch of 20 HEDDphones, is that they mean? And I would assume they would continue pumping them out at that rate until they have raised sufficient capital to increase capacity?

    And if the initial reports from new owners are all positive, demand will increase rapidly. But I think HEDD have their plan together, not like the Verum 1 and Empyrean debacles.

    As far as I know, their AMT tweeters are all hand made, as you see in this video, at 2:55. If it is also the case for Hp (meaning is considerably more time taking than any planar or -off the shelf- dynamic driver design), it is no wonder that production is slower.
