I am still leaning toward the Super.fi EB with my budget as well. I like to listen to lyrics and bass at the same time. Does the bass of EB overshadow the vocals/lyrics in a song?
Yes, even after a burn-in period, the 5 EB is still too bloated and muddy for enjoyable listening without EQing a bunch.
You might "hear" the lyrics, but good luck understanding them in most cases (in songs with actual bass).
Why do you think I have the M5 and also keep recommending it? The sound is just better (Heck, I was even able to stand using it for classical last night, something I could never do with the 5 EB).
