What's all this talk about "inherent strengths" of dynamic drivers again? electrodynamic drivers are not inherently better than orthodynamic drivers in any way. You say yourself that you have not heard any other ortho headphones. And you have not heard ortho drivers in a good acoustic implementation for sure then. I much prefer a good ortho driver to any electrodynamic driver I've ever heard which is basically all of them ever made.. with the exception of a few new models that I know I wouldn't like anyways.
