For your imformation, L2 has a peak in presence region around 2kh, so it feels more bright, not because of it is more neutral.
I couldn't agree with you more @ohotonge! @dakanao IMHO I don't think there is any sub 1k headphone out there that can make the FSP sound veiled without a non-neutral treble peak in it. I own about 19 mid- fi headphones in the $150.00-$700.00 range and always keep my FSP in the rotation because of its neutrality in the treble/presence region.....especially for a closed headphone too.
I never said the Philips L2 was neutral.. The FSP seemed a bit too dark to MY ears, but on their own it's not problematic at all.
I can understand why people would love the FSP if they would mix music, but for regular music listening they're a bit too revealing for me, since not all my music is perfectly remastered. And the Philips L2 just sounds clearer (regardless of their 2khz peak) and smoother as well, which gives a way more pleasing expierence enjoying the music imo.
