This sounds to have a point. However the statement, very widesoundstage doesn't appear to be true. Infact, though its not a fair comparison :My AKG K551, is clearly way ahead in wider soundstage part compared to these. The only reason I keep the H6 is, they are quite good looking and blends well with any dressing. I never found anything good sounding to be so good looking. (subjective) K551 is an embarassement if worn in public, but for a closed pair of headphone, for the price I paid (69 Euros new from Amazon in a lightning deal!!). Using both the headphones from my FiiO E12 and Objective O2, K551 thought there is an annoying treble peak at times clearly is ahead of soundstage part, and details in midrange are more clear as they are bit mid forward. I wish the H6 were wider. To me the strange thing is they sound wider if I angle them in a way that there is a tiny gap for sound leakage(which fails the isolation). But for my head, on the best isolation position, it sounds closed in. With 551, I never had any such issues, the soundstage is wide always.
