If that's the case, what does it mean if I find the Sennheiser CX500's sound addictive but not necessarily outstanding...or even great...but I like to listen to them, they give great enjoyment. However, i find the sound quality of the Triple-fis to be outstanding and love to listen to them as well, they provide an appreciation for the nuances of music and sense of the power of the sound as if in person.
Example: In my church we have a great choir and they sing beautifully. However, when we have a Pastor conference stationed at our church, a whole host of Pastors are there, filling all the spaces in the pews and singing like you've never heard before. It is truly an awesome and magnificently dramatic sound experience, the power of that sound, cannot be described in order to gain an appreciation of it. It has to be experienced.
That's kind of like these Triples. They have a more powerful sound that approaches breathtaking, given the right source of music. It's not even close to what I was referring to with the Pastors but it is a power, nonetheless.
