How was the Harmonic Distortion graph made? I mean, how loud of a signal was used? 90dB 100dB 110dB?
I ask because I'm most definitely in the market for planar magnetic head phones for the incredible detail/resolution and bass performance. I noticed on the frequency response there's massive roll off on the bass but I also noticed very little distortion (compared to most dynamic drivers-especially at this price) around those frequencies. So I think to myself, perhaps they respond well to EQ. But if the harmonic distortion graph was made say using 80dB loudness, it's not impressive at all.
Other side note, not seeing both left and right channel on the frequency response (and HD graph) is depressing. It helps me gauge if I can expect matched drivers. I can only assume they're not matched well. I suppose this is a marketing tactic (shady) for the less savvy customer. Showing an unmatched pair wouldn't look very pretty to any type of customer.
Granted, for $170 bucks to have everything top notch would be a steal. So it's understandable such things are present.
