Nice thread certainly a good read, open makes more sense. Allow the air around the driver as well as the sound coming from it to flow more naturally as opposed to keeping it in a enclosed enviorment where it will probably have a great deal of resonance.

 

Also the idea of having "bass reinforced" through a enclosure makes me feel like I'm being cheated a little, It'd like to call myself a Bass Head and I'd like to know the immense sensation of sub bass is a result of the force of the driver alone... not a result resonance. Plus I'm itching to enjoy a good Ahmad Jamal Trio Double Bass solo... of which my current closed headphones absolutely murder >.>
