    The general consensus on this site seems to be that the Clears have better tonal balance and fewer flaws than the Utopia, but I recently got the Utopias and I definitely prefer them over the Clears. I find them to have better dynamics, clarity, and speed with a similar tonal balance (a little brighter, but still relatively warm, at least compared to my Lambda NBs). What exactly do people dislike about the Utopias in comparison to the Clears?

    We hear them similarly. I found the Clear boring coming from the Utopia tbh.

  2. "completely different animal"? i find that hard to believe having tried the hd800 with a variety of amps. not even the hd800s is a "completely different animal" from the hd800. an amp would have to reduce the 6khz peak and increase the bass in order to transform the hd800's sound signature into something approaching significantly different. i'm yet to hear an amp do that and it's arguable that no amp should.

    You already asked Birgir with pm, got an answer. Also started a topic about it, got an answer and started another topic.

    I think you should go with this website. Get and experience about it and share your experiences with your friends.

    Or just get a JH 13 and stfu.

    I'm disappointed with the Utopias.  They are very good.  That is the problem.  Everything with them sounds very good.  Nothing sounds great, and nothing sounds bad. Maybe I could have a better system for them, but a Capitole Mk II SE running to a maxed out SP Extreme with true NOS VT-231 and Tung Sol 5998 is about as good as I'm going to get.  

    Thank you, Todd (skullguise), for letting me borrow your Utopias.  I am very interested in what my friends think, on Sunday.  It is a combo of audio engineers and music fans, and none of them pay much attention to me (they wouldn't be my friends, otherwise). 

    my reaction was very different. i was really impressed by the utopia. its sound and build quality made it a headphone worthy of totl status.
