Electrostat Battle Royale

I get the impression I'd like the 4070 aside from the bass. I'll definitely pick up a set of 950s at some stage too.

Stat's I've never heard:

007

4070

sigma

950

Jade

HE60

HE90

HE 1.3

Pretty pathetic really for a stat fan :(

I've only heard two of those.

... Plus the SR-3N, ESP9,SR-202, SR-001, SR-001 Mk.2 and whatever Lambda it was Milkpowder had.

it'd probably be easier to list the stats you have heard -- which is what (that made you a fan)?

I also didn't like that the 4070's were heavy. Not that they were painful to wear or anything, but you'd move your head, and their static momentum ("objects at rest tend to stay at rest") would keep them where they were (which means that they would move relative to your head). No headbanging whatsoever, in fact, you'd have to move in such a manner that the coefficient of static friction kept them on your head -- once you hit kinetic friction, all is lost. And it didn't take much to crossover from one to the other. This only occurs if you listen for more than 10 minutes at a time.

So I just wanted to thank whomever for the opportunity to finally having heard a pair. I'll probably still get a pair (I did like them enough), but they're not the bees' knees.

What I've heard would be far too long but I've never heard two Stax models, the SR-2 (which isn't supposed to exist but it was made briefly in 1968) and the equally rare SR-X Mk1 with mesh drivers. I'd also like to hear the Pioneer SE-1000, the Sony ECR-800 and the Purtscheller set even if it is only a prototype.

I don't think I've heard that many headphones yet.
