just got these, going to give them some burn in time, but initial impressions are... eh... I find the FR really wonky. Like they're bright but veiled. It almost reminds me of the treble on a HD600, but taken to an extreme beyond all reasonable extremes. Huge 4k peak followed by an 8k hole, followed by a 12k peak that makes cymbals bright.
With parametric EQ, I enjoyed them quite a bit, but straight out of my iPhone (ie the whole purpose I bought them for) I don't know that I can deal. I played around with the silver and black, and couldn't decide which I liked better. I'm scared of the gold filter because the 4 and 11k peaks already were so much for me, I don't know if I can deal with more treble, but I'll try.
Also having a couple different versions of Comply tips waiting on me when I get home, so maybe that will help too. Going to give these every chance. I really like the build, the weight doesn't bother me at all, and I like the way they feel. Wish the cable was less sticky/kinky but I think that will be fine with time.
At this point though, I still prefer my $10 pair of innateck woody iems that nobody else in the world seems to have even ever heard of, lol.
Again, going to keep giving these a chance, but it seems like my search for IEMs continues. I'm in this position of not really liking IEMs (hate the inner ear being full feeling, even with CIEMS), so I can't justify spending more than $100-$200 for them, preferably less, but that also means I never really find anything I like.
