Not on the same level, but I just tried the Fischer FA-011 headphones today. I liked them a lot. Smooth and on the polite side, yet sufficiently punchy and detailed--- like a Vali Jr. They have a great sonic virtue: like Hippocrates in medicine (Eric?), they commit to first doing no harm. I respect them for that very much, and will be getting a pair, when funds permit. (But first, I have to admit, I still really like the laid-back, easy-going sound of the Audioquest Nighthawk-- and so will first be getting another (!) pair of those (but this time in the carbon edition).
