Yeah, that seems to be the consensus. Well, I just had the ath-r70x, but sold them recently. They were fairly good, but the stax was just more lovely. The r70x was really colorless, which I like, but the l300's separation, speed, and soundstage were game changing to me. Honestly, it'd be hard for me to go back to dynamics. Now, all I have are iems like the ER4S, which was a factor in me selling the r70x, as well as the re00 and se215. I'll never sell my ER4S's, they're my babies too, unless the baby stax changes my mid lol. But thanks everyone for the advice.
