    The second one sounds more grammatical to me.

    Both are fine. The difference between "were" and "have been" is negligible and has no impact on meaning.

    I don't know how many times I have to tell you that the simple past and present perfect are both correct when the time is unspecified. Why do you keep asking the same question?

    Both are. The meanings aren't the same, though. Which one you'd say, therefore, would depend entirely on what meaning you wished to convey.
