Well, that's sounds all nice and good, but I simply wouldn't know what to make of it. You may call it what you like, but it felt simply chaotic and random compared to the Sennheiser. Even with my very limited experience with them I found them tiring. I wonder if there is any way sound wouldn't be perceived as some kind of soundstage even if it's completely flat... Anyway, saying they are "just like open cans" is definitely misleading, unless the Senneheiser are the complete exception here. You might get something completely different than the soundstage you opted for. I have said I find thm "more fun", the Sennheiser are simply dry and more detached, but I would still like to make some kind of sense of spatial orientation and get a balanced presentation as opposed to everything being "all there", sometimes literally trying to overshout each other (I also noticed more noise than with the Sennheiser). I don't care for 3D holographs and whatever, one just has to take into account the difference of this soundstage, and not talk about it as if it were a pure, normal and everyday soundstage, when there are such fundamentally different distinctions to be made.
