Thank you for your time.
-The Special Edition is based on the original design but is made in China. The original was made in Ireland.
-Not that it matters but the packaging is much cheaper on this version.
-The wiring seems a little bit thinner. Maybe 1 or 2 gauge thinner. Also the new wire has a mesh cover.
-The main difference of course is price. The original was $299+. This one has a much better price point.
I have tested with multiple music genres as well as some gaming. Fallout 4, Battlefield & PUBG. The sound seems much the same. I really can't tell a difference. I guess the only thing the remains is reliability. I guess time will tell.
UPDATE: When using these to record, the open cans leak far too much sound to keep the recording quality from hearing slight playback of the sound. While I understand recording with a pair of open headphones is not smart, it's a deal breaker for those maybe considering that for streaming or recording.
UPDATE: I've been able to "stretch" these out a bit by keeping them clamped over something wider than my head when I'm not using them, and it's taken a while for it to be effective but the pressure is significantly less than it was and they're much better to wear now. I'm raising the rating to four stars.
