As far as I know, open headphones will outperform closed ones in a given price. In my experience, open headphones sound more natural and real, and vocals particularly benefit from that. However, I have never owned or auditioned any hifi closed headphones and I cant compare them to mid-fi open headphones. Do hifi closed headphones sound more natural and ultimately better than mid-fi headphones? Or are they still limited by their closed nature even in their higher price tag?
