    Not bad looking, I skimmed it but didn't see a weight so hopefully they are continuing the trend of better sound with lighter weight.

    You made me laugh so hard that I ought to enter comment to my code in case I find errors in compiling it, lol.

    I wonder if these conform to the Harman Curve!?

    You don't want harman curve for competitive sound.

    Hmm, it depends. Harman Curve might help with virtualised 7.1 surround sound, as Harman Curve for headphones is simulating what 2 flat speakers in a room would sound like (with maybe a little bass boost)...so I think that would be a good platform for the HRTF of 7.1 surround sound to build on rather than some random frequency response curve. I know that EQ'ing my K702's to the Harman Curve seemed to help with enemy location in 3D space when I was using 7.1 virtual surround sound in BF1. For example HRTF is only applying frequency & volume changes to effects to simulate stuff appearing behind your head, so if you have a headphone with an unpredictable & wildly varying frequency response curve then that's not a stable enough base to apply those HRTF frequency changes, because I think the HRTF frequency changes would 'get lost' in the noise of the wildly varying frequency response curve....so I think at the very least that it's important for the headphone to have a smooth frequency response curve on which to build HRTF if not the actual Harman Curve...but the Harman Curve would be a good natural start, natural sound.

    Harman tends to have a lot of bass, that's not really needed in competitive gaming. I'd use EQ to kill bass and boost upper mids / treble to retrieve footsteps and other crucial sound.

    Yeah, that's what scout mode does in Soundblaster software, I've not tried it yet. I think that would be ok as long as your headphone has got a smooth frequency response or it's been EQ'd smooth from measurements (like from Oratory1990 or other places) - in terms of using virtualised 7.1 on top of that.
