I'm fairly certain that JVC HA-S680 could kick Yamaha's ass up and down the street with one earcup tied behind its back.
Except, of course, for the soundstage - after all, it is closed vs. open.
Unfortunately, the discovery thread isn't friendly to headphones above 50$ that aren't available at Amazon or the nearest mall.
I'm not sure why anyone would get worked up about another pair of headphones getting more attention unless they're insecure about their own purchase. If you're so distressed, maybe you should loan your S680s to DS and he might land up hyping them, too. This is his discovery thread, after all. It's only natural that people mainly go for what he recommends.
