i don’t think so. My chain is really great for orthos. It’s probably different preferences plus you using eq plus me having a ton of experience with orthos and evaluating these with that knowledge - knowing what is possible - not just as a headphone compared to electrodynamics. (Side note - I’m not trying to brag about my modded orthos here, I have yet to realize what I know is possible) Also I only heard the Clears for like 10 minutes at a meet with a friend so I could be wrong about that. But I usually get a good sense about headphones pretty quick. I don’t want to post my test track because I have issues. It’s complicated.
