What is a biodynamic driver?

Biodynamic drivers use a bio cellulose material instead of plastic and typically have rubber surrounds like speaker woofers. This will usually give BD drivers more range of motion and can provide greater frequency range and quite often significantly more bass quantity and depth than traditional dynamic drivers.

The diaphragm is made of bio cellulose, which is in part a component of a dynamic driver. There’s a pretty good article about this style of driver over on head-fi that goes into far greater explanations. But just as a quick aside it is a superior material that has sound characteristics of both metal and paper diaphragm drivers.
How does the sound compare to the TH900?

Well I owned the th900 for about a week and sold them. The highs were murder to me. The PH's on the other hand are W shaped instead of V. The bass on the PH are great but don't have the lower frequency rumble that the th900 has, but the mids and highs are smoother. I love the PH, they are my main headphone for EDM.

Does anybody know what screw secures the earcup/earchamber to the headband assembly? Seems like a tiny screw -- mine snapped when I bumped it against a mic.

Mine also snapped while taking it off my head. I'm trying to figure out what to do next - let me know if you came up with anything. I'll check back here if I do.

Can the pads be replaced?

Yes, they can. I would recommend picking up an extra pair of pad rings if you're going to be pad swapping though. I found the ZMF Ori pads fit perfectly and vastly improve comfort but you'll have to mess around with the different materials to find which you like the most.
