    Anyone try the ESW10JPN and the Ultrasone Signature Pro?

    Can someone compare the sound signatures of the two headphones two each other. Which one has a more accurate sound depiction and bigger sound stage? Also how portable is the Ultrasone Signature Pro? I know many regard the ESW10JPN as the top portable around.
