Got mine today...disappointed.
I just tried mine for the first time and they sound pretty good (really good for the price). I'm going to try the whole burn in thing and see if that makes a difference.
Edit: "mine" was "me"
I can safely say EarPods don't sound better. They're much more harsh. People that like bright sounding headphones dislike them. They aren't THE most clear. You're still paying more for the logo and the design which upon the launch, was a total lie. "Acoustic bass chaber". Behind the small 5mm driver, there is nothing but solid plastic. The sound is INSIDE your head. No real sense of space, no soundstage, no bass which the Monks do have, just not prominent. The Monks do also have a burn in period of about five straight days.
