I don't pay any attention at all to measurements. Do they sound good. That's enough, measurements are hogwash to me. So yes Thekk is the superior sounding headphone to me. Better bass....not as dry sounding yet with significant technology.

It's difficult to discuss differences in terms limited to good-bad )

Thekk's bass is bigger, not better, alas. No wonder - many many many people take "bigger" as "better". But objectively talking Thror's bass is more balanced, more resolving and natural compared to Thekk's bass. And subjectively talking Thekk’s bass is more fun and wow-generating, but usually and unfortunately that’s short-term effects.

(And definitely better to move further discussion to Kennerton thread).

I really want to buy the NM-1 but it's just too expensive to purchase from the United States. And the creator told me that if I pay with PayPal, there's an additional 10% commission fee! 10%!!!

Well I was very interested, but now I'm going to pass and move on. For the cost of them plus shipping and a ridiculous up charge on PayPal fees, I can find a brand new LCD 4.

@levap I believe this is your starry map of Kennerton headphones...could you English translate this and put this side-by-side with Snorry map so everyone whose interested in Russian headphones can get a better picture of where all the models fall in perspective of each other?

I reached out to Snorry to maybe sell a headband and yoke replacement kit as i am hoping to get something more durable/time lasting for my Fostex 900's. Sadly to say Snorry is not selling parts or doing mods anymore.. at least to anyone outside of Russia. So now, still trying to source someone that owns an Audeze to get me a replacement kit.

Really strange, I thought that I posted it in a Kennerton thread here, but actually - not. Thanks and more maps - Kennertons and once more Snorry ) As you can see I find SI-2 vs Odin, NM-1 vs Thror very close in overal level matters.
