May I ask what headphone amplifier did you use to compare for your non-stat headphones?
Also, between headphones and speakers, which of the 2 provide a higher resolution now that you've spent sufficient time listening to a top tier headphone setup? - even when given that speakers suffer from a disadvantage due to room acoustics.
I'm curious to know because I've been wanting to purchase a speaker that's even more revealing than my current headphone and for all the other obvious reasons.
The frequency response chart of your speakers is impressive and measure exceptionally well but obviously didn't satisfy you enough judging from your purchase of the o2's - which itself together with its amp sells for as much as your studio monitors.
I personally own a respectable speaker setup which costed me £3000/$4500 and find room acoustics to be minimal unless I turn the volume knob really high up, when it does affect the overall sound, I find that it's mostly the bass reacting to my non-treated room.
I sit 2 metres away which might explain why.
