"biocellulose diaphragms"? Is there some inorganic, synthesized source of cellulose that's different than the actual real cellulose we get from plants that they want to differentiate theirs from, or is this more bullcrap technobabble that's supposed to impress the rubes who don't know better?

It's moreso a way to distinguish a plant sourced diaphragm from the more common mylar/other plastics based ones. Or from the metal coated ones. It's not trying to differentiate itself from the generic term of cellulose used in other industries. These labels are in the context of marketing against other driver diaphragm materials. It's the only one from a biological source, so hence the naming. The average person may not be aware cellulose comes from plants, specifically when you're talking about buying headphones/speakers. Calling them biocellulose is a good way to differentiate that material from the plastics and metals of other diaphragm materials, as well as from the more common paper cones in speakers. In context, the term makes sense.

how do these compare to the Purple heart? My purple hearts lost one channel and thinking of replacing them.

Curious in general, but for these specifically...Does the use of Walnut wood make a tonal difference in playback? Guitarists always speak about different tone-wood theories (mahogany-dark, cedar-light tone) I'm curious if a similar principle is considered with headphones? What are your thoughts? Can anyone confirm/deny?

Yes I eagerly await to see how far you are willing to take your trolling and apparently the answer is even when you are proven wrong you are willing to continue even being diminished to the point of not being able to say anything other than insults in response

maybe you should finish learning English before you post here is a free lesson for you argument definition - an exchange of diverging or opposite views guess what that's what this entire discussion has been I hope you fix whatever is wrong with your life that's making you shit-post online and attack people for proving you wrong :)

I love how they have the "RRP" as $299. I literally ordered a set of these from the Emu website, for $99,($20 shipping), just yesterday, literally(My amazing CAL!s recently passed on). I was actually a bit annoyed, when I got the email, because it implied(to me, anyway), that they were available for shipping. But, then I saw it was just a pre-order, for delivery around Thanksgiving. I was glad I already purchased them, as I will have them on my head before the pre-order ends in 7 days. lol I just have to shake my head and laugh at Drop, more often than not. Especially, since they dropped the "mass". I just don't understand it, anymore. Why would anyone wait over 3 months, for something they want, just to MAYBE, save a few bucks. I can't imagine anyone would choose to save 20 bucks, and wait so long, they had forgotten they even ordered them, when it comes. Rather than pay roughly the same, and have then in a couple days. I guess the surprise factor, would be pretty cool. But, I would still remember I ordered them "way back in summer", after opening the box. I can't fool myself very long. Even though, I have to do the math to remember how old I am, sometimes... It's like I'm watching a company intentionally trying to bankrupt itself. Such a silly business strategy, this has become, in my opinion.

I'll look through the discussions later, but any quick comments on sound quality, tonality? I have the Purplehearts, and while I loved the form factor, not a big fan of the sound. Too bass heavy, imo. Anyone able to compare the Walnuts vs the Purplehearts?
