How was the bass response with the Jotunheim?  I've read positive impressions of pairing the cans with the Liquid Carbon, as most tend to describe the signature as warm, yet resolving.  Everything I hear about the Jotunheim is that is is accurate and detailed, but perhaps slightly cold, which I would like to avoid.  For now, I'm using a modest Creative X7.  It gets the job done, but given the amp is likely the weak link on the device, I think that the Ether C Flows deserve better.
Have both amps and C Flows. Overall I prefer the Jot's flat, accurate rendering with tight bass to the LC's warmer, somewhat sirupy tone, which can be delightful on material like solo violin. But then my reference recorded sound is from a speaker system (see my sig) which I chose to be as balanced, accurate, fast, and resolving as I could find. I also listen to lots of live jazz and my preference is for speed, dynamics, and detail, with all the charming imperfections of instruments and players.

I think Tyll forgot to mention that the Ether C flow is the best closed headphone in the market. I think his bias against closed headphones is too strong, his review should have mention the fact that a lot of us prefer a closed headphone than open. Not just professionals need high end closed headphones.  In my case, my listening station is in the bedroom where my wife also spend a lot of time, and I wanted some isolation while listening to the best sound possible.

I think his bias is more against headphones with a treble peak. Which is completely understandable.

Was the reason he took it down though. Probably because for the longest time, nobody was making worthy totl contenders to compete with the hd800. Now that the industry is getting a bit of a shake up, he has more options that fit his preferences.

Yes, his large order shipped and should be there shortly if not already.

Nice summary, you captured a lot of it!  It's really hard to grow staff and suppliers and improve quality and yield at the same time.  

Of course you also have to include personal emergencies, turnover, cashflow management, accounting and taxes, HR issues, unexpected equipment downtime, it's pretty never ending.   

OK, off to go see Rogue One.  

:tongue_smile:  
Thanks brother...for making my xmas and doing the upgrades..
In reality every job listed in a big corporation has a department full of people doing each job...
I did feel sorry for you Dan... but you are seeing Rogue One now I hate you..:blush:
Star wars was my first film...
But I forgive you as I should get my Ethers Wednesday for my 45th birthday yer...:sob: getting old only works if your Yoda..

Yoda ...the effect of a big sneeze with a bad attitude...
Happy merrymass all..

Every iteration of Ether now has Inner Fidelity puffy award. 

All bruised egos soothed now? 

Troll post? Is that really necessary?

Stuff like that doesn't really matter. There's so much subjectivity in enjoying one sound signature over another. Enjoy the headphones you have. Demo ones you may want to buy.

If you were in need of a closed-back, you already made a great purchase. But post your comparisons agains the HD800, anyways. :wink:
