Satellite: I have heard the S4 Klipsch. No way do they "sound better" than the Panas. The S4 sound very very good - very similar sound signature to my Maximo i590s actually, though the Maximos are a bit brighter mid and top and the S4 extend a bit lower.

Different yes - not better.

But to my ears, the Panas just have this great sense of space and dynamics. Everything is punchy and i can easily detect not only individual instruments in complicated music, but also can zero in on where they are coming from [not just stage left, center, right, but almost like hands on a clock]....

Man, I do notice that i like these a tad better at lower to mid volumes. At higher volumes the treble does seem a bit overtop at times, though still pleasant for me as I like this sound type.

Maybe give them some more time, both for you and your brain? Maybe lower volume levels for a day? And try no EQ...

Just for information's sake and FWIW, here are my Panas and the volume levels I am using on my DAPs:

Sony E345: No EQ, volume 12 of 30...With EQ, volume 8 of 30
RB Fuze: No EQ, volume -22dB...With EQ, volume -26dB
RB GigabeatF40: No EQ, volume - 35dB....With EQ, volume -40dB

Actually, this could be useful for me and TDS as he has RB Fuse as well.
