My pair arrived from Amazon just before they became unavailable. I think that Senn figured out that they could sell these for any price and be rated at the top of its peers. They are transformative. The reproduction is perfect by any accepted criteria. It obviously does some kind of DSP spatial processing that is perfect. Forget all prior ideas of sound stage. These strike me as a Freudian slip from the future. So glad to benefit from the mistake.
I will call them canonical. The standard against which must be measured all others. Everything you listen to you know you are having the privilege of hearing it perfectly for the first time ever. Probably. At least as perfectly as you are capable of.
They create the obsession that you must re-listen to your entire music collection. Weird, that.
The important thing is that they have the recipe and an existence proof. Transforming these characteristics to devices with other form factors is a technicality.
