Why are the HD555 drivers made out of garbage mylar? I don't like the sound charictaristic of mylar or plastic much at all.

Would it be possible to get another material such as tar treated silk or something else, maybe a titanium cone and big rubber soft squishy surrounds?

I say this mostly because Iv'e heard more audiophile speaker systems than headphones. in fact iv'e NEVER heard audiophile headphones seeing as the sennheiser cx6 (which are COMPLETE GARBAGE) are the best headphones iv'e ever heard. The klipsch are garbage. The Bowers and Wilkins are garbage. My crossfade are garbage. My old (FREE. did NOT pay for them) Bose quiet comfort 3 were garbage. Myfree Bose in ear headphones were garbage. My Etymotic ER6i were garbage. The HD 555 are garbage too. Every pair of headphones Iv'e ever heard are garbage.

I say this when comparing them to Actual audiophile speakers, like JMlab, which have Focal drivers which had $2,000 Berrylium tweeters, Anthony Gallo's, ATC's, Velodyne, Quad electrostatic speakers and such powered by amplifiers such as Mcintosh tube amps, and Quad 405's, NAD receivers, Marantz and Meridian receivers... Used on sources like a Musical Fidelity CD player, or a Escient Fireball for music.

I will probably never own an actual audiophile setup for years and YEARS aside from my Velodyne ULD 18 subwoofer which was the first sub ever to get a class A rating on Stereophile.

I'm trying to learn here, Flame me like you would anyway. It just serves as an obvious filter to ignore your post.

Lol, I bet no one will answer my question regarding the garbage HD555's poor construction qualities for a very long time, or I will get a reply telling me to gtho and ask on an audio forum.

I s
HD 555 are $100 headphones. Not really comparable to a $2,000+ speaker . They use cheaper materials to cut costs.
