    Never heard of these until now, but dual dynamic drivers? That's actually unique and interesting.

    also i have to say I am becoming pretty "hi" on hifiman. There good to shit headphone ratio is probably the best out there at the moment.

    I heard the he1k and I was honestly shocked, i will be writing a review soon.

    They are not worth 3k but in terms of the best overall headphone for every genre I would take them over anything else, followed by a modded hd800/hd800s and 009s.

    Now I'm interested in these little dudes. I really don't want to spend $700 on a pair though, since I'd like to keep it close to $500, but I'll take a look for reviews.

    I'll be doing a review in a couple of weeks, hopefully.

    It's a partnership with UM? ...My experiences w/ UM haven't been so hot, personally.
    Maybe the Fang-ness will counteract that?

    ya i wouldn't worry about that, hifiman has sketchy build quality, but their customer service has been top notch in my experience

    please leave impressions

    the re1000 and kse1500s are the only earphones that interest me of late

    It's definitely a concern of mine, too.

    That line that breaks the scale could just be the phase angle and phase wrapping. The bottom trace looks like the THD plot, which stays below 1 percent as you would expect. Linear plotting of distortion is not very telling, neither is lumping it all up into number. Given the typical the dynamic IEM, probably benign, but it doesn't hurt to be sure.

    Do you know what type of coupler was used for this measurement? The dynamic would be somewhat less susceptible to acoustic impedance issues, but it still throws in another variable.

    Whether it's 711 or not, bass has a definite lift to it as we go down in frequency.

    There are several existing examples of dual dynamic earphones if you want to check it out at a much lower price point.

    JVC HA-FXZ200, Audio-Technica ATH-CKR9 (plus a half dozen or so others), MEE M-Duo, Brainwavz R4, TDK Life on Record, Fidue A71.

    The JVC uses nano-something and has a little pipe for the bass driver to limit the frequencies that driver produces, which is pretty unique. Audio-Technica has drivers facing each other to do something special. The rest are more straightforward.

    There are also some multi-driver full-size cans out there, such as the JVC HA-SZ1000/SZ2000. Frequency response kinda sucks on those stock but they response well to EQ and can provide maximum epic bass.
