Most interesting bit is at 5:01 showing the REAL freq response of figure of 8 characteristic. While the graph is written you can see the 1/3 octave measurement and at the end it is all smoothed out with octave smoothing.
It's using the published tolerance quite effectively...
Also I don't know if the hand assembly is before the manufacturing went to Sennheiser or after that.

I should be banned from Gearslutz for watching the part about hot tubs being made with a lot more interest. I want one!

One thing that surprised me that it looks they didn't do something about static electricity on their hands or wearing gloves etc.

I saw the segment on TV and was a little disappointed as I thought the tensioning of the diaphragm was the key to the sound and they spent little, if any, time on that, as I remember. BTW, I'm a big How Its Made fan...

because it's handmade in Germany, not China (at least those hands didn't look very Chinese to me...)

You heard of the concept of editing a film?

I know it is a TV show that has to fit a time slot and not bore everyone to death but sometimes I find the lack of detail so funny.

When the guy says "now they fit the electonics" as if the electronics just magically appeared and didn't need any making.
