Conclusion = what each headphone sounds like to each person.

Ranking = what each person would pick as their first favorite, second favorite, etc etc...

Unfortunately, the Orpheus rig LOOKS so wonderous that the usual expectation effect enters the mind of the listener. In other words it is assumed that the Orpheus will be light years better just by looks and price.
That's exactly why I gave myself at least over a month to listen to the R10s before deciding whether I hate them or like them. I also set out to find a good amp to compliment them in order to push them to their best, taking leaps in price ranges between each amp, since they seem very amp dependant. If I could ever afford one, I'd LOVE to hear how the R10s sound with the Holmes Powell DCT-2. Now that would be an ultimate dynamic headphone setup.
