    What are the most foot-tapping headphones out there? Opposite taste of Senn 600/800

    What are the most musically engaging headphones out there that keep your feet tapping and enjoying music late into the night ?

    My taste is completely opposite of the severely analytical Sennheiser 600/800/900 that just throw detail at you and bore you to death.

    Thank you. Does the new Focal Elear fit into this category?

    The most reliable reviews I've read say that the Elear is warmer and slightly less detailed than the Utopia, but better on average for music listening. Given all of the weird sounding headphones I've had from $600 to $1700 USD, I'd say the Elear should be a real winner. But I'm looking to buy the Utopia anyway, just because....
