C'mon, you said you had a high IQ......all did was ask politely for something you agreed to provide three days ago! LOL.
Thanks for taking the time comparing the two........................................................But I hear my Cute S500's way differntly than you do yours! I will have the Somics on Saturday, and soon after I will have some impressions, and comparisons to my S500's!
It was two days ago, and I agreed to do it soon. (I use relative words to weasel my way out of responsibility. Works every time. xD)
I don't think it would take much to open up the sound stage over the HA-S500. That was the one real complaint I had on my reviewed pair. Great comparison Cash. I look forward to them for certain. The way you describe them I am wondering how far off something like the Sony V6 is in comparison.
I remember hearing the MDR-7506 (the sibling of the V6) at a meet once a few months ago. It's not on the same plane as either of these. I wouldn't mess with it. Kind of a more veiled version of the ATH-M50, as I remember it.
