Weird things I come back to. I'm not sure why people insist on posting on topics they aren't interested in, and ruining things for others. I can't remember now if I posted it earlier or not, but to me, the design of the Empyrean, more so than other headphones I've had here, really do look their price. I don't think people appreciate the efforts manufacturers go to in making products like this. Stax, for example, bet their entire company on the SR-009s, in essence. I just started shooting the Empyrean, so here's one shot for everyone's enjoyment.
