The AEON 2 Closed is not particularly noted for having a wide (or deep) soundstage. In general, closed-back headphones are not very good at simulating a massive, enveloping stage. Any decent open headphone should beat most closed backs in this sole regard.@mrspeakers
What do you recommend as an amp for the Aeon 2s closed?
Did you ever think about making angled pads for the Aeon2?
To be honest my fidelio X2 sounds better to me. Maybe it's becase there open with angled pads vs closed.
I think the problem to me is that the soundstage kind of is behind my ears while i'm used to it being more around me and i can't get used to it.
If staging is very important to you, and you are of no particular need for a closed-back, stick with an open can.
