I see people really liking Fiio E12 and the bad news is that reviews says the E12 has a small sound stage. Now, I bought a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990 pro 250 ohm's. I'm coming froma pair of AKG 518 headphones, which were closed and claustrophobic. I heard that open headphones are airy and it creates a separation between instruments, and also bigger sound stage.
My iPhone 4S doesn't really deliver a big sound stage. I really would like to enjoy my first open headphones, but I fear that the E12 won't deliver based on the reviews.
Also is it true that sound stage is only important for classical music, jazz, vocals only, in other words everything but hip hop, pop, rap, r&b?
