Now that this thread has been renamed to read "Top", instead of "mid-range", what's your comments on the Ultrasone Edition 8 in comparison to these reviewed headphones?
I remember that you used to rate the Ed8 quite highly.
Too many headphones to list in the title, so this one seemed easier.
Several years ago, the pickings for good closed portable headphones were slim. But I can now honestly say that the top 3 here all sound better than the Ed. 8s.
That, and I never fully considered my $2000 Ed.8LEs, portable...as I couldn't bring myself to taking them out of the house.
