They are both really good. I swing between them.
They are different valuable aspects of the same thing and I will almost certainly end up with both.

I think one's ear canal size/shape general state of hearing and headphones has a big effect on perception so it's impossible to say one is better or more neutral.

On the spot I think Realphones is more "realistic", more 3D, unforgiving low and "mid" mids (a good thing), but there are aspects of Sienna that suit my failing hearing up the top end even if not necessarily realistic, and the bass is clear. I mix better using a combination of both (not together). I guess a bit like having different sets of monitors.

[Edit to add - Interestingly when I get my mix right it sounds very similar in both.]
