    Averages on the bottom for these flagship level headphones. This is all I was saying before you started in. Generally speaking orthos are hindered by their heavier magnetic structures...par for the course. #facts Not all orthos are heavier, but the histograms support the added weight due to the magnetic structures used in their drivers. Again, do you NOT acknowledge this?

    And there is more to comfort (as I mentioned previously and you conveniently missed) than the weight, but the design of the headband is a big player too. As I mentioned, the Empyreans are heavier than 3/4 dynamic headphones here, but still quite a bit more comfortable and it's not even close.

    you're qualifying your position on this again. what you actually said before i "started in" is what i quoted back to you in post #4835 above. the folks who corrected you by providing several examples of "orthos" that are not heavy, didn't misread your posts and neither did i. i don't know what you hope to gain by trying to argue around the point rather than just acknowledging that you were mistaken.

    You do realize heavy is a relative term right? Not many in the 300g range. :wink:

    Funny how you can ignore data and questions posted to you. Need to pick up more spray tomorrow.

    I keep trying...as mentioned the folks at Meze know comfort! I can have these on my head for hours and forget I have a pair of headphones on.

    I just paid for my gsx mini today. Got it in satin blue. Can’t wait to pair it with my Empyrean which by the way I wore for 6 hrs with no issues.

    Thanks! It is complete. Just waiting on final editing and to be scheduled. It pairs brilliantly with the Empyrean! Brilliant control across the spectrum and still very musical.

    Sorry about that guys, I should have never asked LCMusiclover about the Rosson here, didn't think it would become this. Anyway. ultimately the Empy has decent weight, high comfort level by most standards and a great tonal balance too. It's a wonder they managed to achieve all of that.

    I am looking into getting a "Black and Gold" pair. Hopefully they come to the US soon, if not...... I wonder can it be direct ordered yet from Meze?

    Congratulations! You should be very happy with this combination! I certainly am! I think these are the only headphones I could use for 6 hours straight.

    More then weight it’s the weight distribution and clamping force that makes or breaks a headphone comfort. I have Verite ziricote which weighs 550g without cable. However I don’t feel it’s weight due to its even distribution

    I heard them in Canjam NY driving Susvara and it had more then enough juice in it for HIFIMAN.
    I don’t remember the sound signature but how do you find this pairing

    you say that now but you're the one who described "orthos" as 'heavy" in absolute terms.

    i'm trying to keep you on point by ignoring your attempts to divert the discussion away from the blanket statement that you made about "orthos", which was corrected by other forum members. this really isn't worth trying to save face over. better to acknowledge that you were mistaken and move on.
