I wonder if you'd like what I end up doing with my Elear...hmm. Anyway, that's a good way to put it. Listenable, and you can acclimate to it, much more so than the stock HD800. Yeah, I find the Utopia much easier to listen to on my Super 7 than I did with the Studio + mesh tubes at the meet. Same DACs. Though, like I said, the Studio sounded brighter than I remember with the mesh tubes compared to my last listen with RCAs. Yes, I have more tolerance for warmfag, and a trigger warning might be appropriate if there's a headphone I should avoid.
