Default Dynamic Drivers VS BA’s

While having a discussion with forum member 3602 in this thread the thought occurred to me that it would be interesting to have a poll. So what do you prefer and why?

IMO balanced armatures seem to be faster, more accurate, more detailed, with better clarity and to my ears they separate instruments very well (adding to the soundstage). While on the other hand dynamic drivers give me the feeling of little speakers; you feel the movement of air, the vibration of the bass and low frequencies. Honestly I can't say they're any less clear and they add a fun factor, they're hard to beat in many cases. I guess each of us can find great examples of how great either technology is and both can have advantages and drawbacks. This is why I'm casting my vote for both techs
