Accurate is still very much a subjective thing. To be honest many "supposedly neutral" cans and IEMs are bass light and have boosted treble. That IMO isn't really neutral but others will think otherwise. Definitely not life-like IMO nor something I'd equate to realistic or what you'll hear in a live show (or orchestra for that matter).
