The reason why you're seeing mixed reviews is because for >$100 you're making sacrifices to build and sound quality and people's expectations are set far too high after listening to anything else of higher quality. Also people have varying definitions of """good""" sound quality.
Just buy Tin T2's, BGVP's or Shure's and call it a day. They all have their shortcomings.
My personal recommendation would be the BGVP DMG's.
