The DX160 mainly wins in soundstage and treble refinement. As for sound signature the N5ii is a bit warmer and ever so slightly more mid focused. The DX160 is closer to neutral but i wouldn't say its super neutral, theres still a bit of warmth in its signaure.In what way? I'm looking at N5ii for it's ethereal take on vocals and treble. Would DX160 be more focused on midrange solely? Balanced being quieter than SE on DX160 is intriguing.
