That is an unusual experience with these binoculars
In comparison, the Swarovski Pocket CL's have a somewhat easier view to take in, so that may be of benefit to you.
As mentioned before in this thread, I tried several samples of the little Terra's and they were all superb. Those were 8x25's. I've only evaluated one pair of the Terra ED 10x25's, which was excellent.
Yes it was weird. Your review was so different than what I experienced. I may or may not have received a dud, but will never know as I'm not interested in pursuing another copy for comparison.
