Well for example, your statement on the scaling of a good amp for the P7 makes it sound like it's on the level of importance an amp is for an amp-mandatory headphone like say the HD800. My beef is against statements like that can easily be misconstrued as an amp being imperative for the enjoyment of the P7, and with a good amp makes the P7 as good as any setup out there. And as for a direct counter to your specific statement, I highly doubt any amp would give an improvement to the P7 compared to the unamped sound as a decent amp would do for the HD800. I'm pretty sure a majority of people would agree with me here on that statement. It's quite likely you aren't even arguing that point with your statement, but I'm just showing how easily a simple statement, without any reference points and coupled with all the praising on this thread, can make it seem that way to the less experienced.
You're bordering between misinterpreting my posts and outright putting words in my mouth. You'd have to read that statement of mine completely out of context to come to that conclusion. Let's break it down:
1 - I never said an amp was imperative for the P7, and in fact I said it sounds great without an amp. I said that it scales better with an amp than the Sennheiser Momentum, which is another portable headphone that's a direct competitor.
2 - I never said it scales with an amp as well as the HD800, or any other higher end open headphone for that matter. In fact, I don't recall bringing those up at all in this thread.
3 - I CERTAINLY never said or even SUGGESTED that with a good amp the P7 is as good as any other setup out there.
There is no way any reasonable person is going to read those statements and come to the conclusions that you're afraid they're going to come to, especially on a forum like this. Like I tell my wife from time to time, you're complaining about stuff that hasn't actually happened yet.
