This leads me to believe that the 800S helmholtz is not optimal...
Just seems like Sennheiser marketing hype to me..
If it were really a "resonator", it should be cancelling resonances, instead of just absorbing that whole treble range...
Shouldn't we hear GREATER CLARITY AND FOCUS(?), without so much dip in perceived trebles??
To me, this object in center is acting more like a absorber than a "resonator"...
That also leads me to believe that an absorber can be just as, or more effective than a "resonator", because in the 800S really they are doing the same thing.
That being to subdue that treble peak,
wich is an area of resonance believed to creat false diffused soundstaging. .
1- So my question now is:
Does anyone hear "increase pinpoint accuracy, or focus" with the new 800S?
Or just subdued trebles?
2- My second question is:
Is the midrange any more clearer in the 800S??
If not, I do not believe in this "resonator" marketing hype.
This also aludes to the fact that alternative new mods being done on original HD800 will have similar success..
A Helmoltz Resonator can act as Absorber :
