Anything with an 8 or higher are basically the same in positional accuracy. I have said this a MILLION times on this thread, point scores should NOT be compared.
10's and 9s are reserved for headphones that suck out immersion/fun for raw detail performance. It doesn't make them better, it just makes them all about competitive gaming. Absolutely zero distraction or real enjoyment, since it's just a pure focus on mids and highs, with a longer, more expansive soundstage, thinner body, and more air. I'm pretty certain that I wouldn't ever rate a headphone near perfect on both fun and competitive.
I'll take a headphone with an 8 if the fun is on par or better, because they will do everything well.
Ideally, people should look at whatever is at least an 8 on both, IMHO. Of course, I have specific tastes, so YMMV.
