Okay. The Utopia's are amazing. Everyone knows they're incredible. But they're also $4k. If you can afford them, go for it, but if you can't, these are definitely the next best thing. I tried both at an audio show recently (briefly) and I felt. The Utopia's look and feel like a premium headphone and are supremely comfortable. But for sound, I feel like I got a lot more value out of the Elears. They are extremely accurate. Now I finally understand what people are saying when they describe headphones as "fast"
