It seems to be a trend to offeset the nozzle by a certain amount of degrees. Probably for better fit, as well as putting in a larger driver. I also read somewhere that it has something to do with soundstaging as well. Most modern dynamic IEMs seems to feature this design. EX90, IE8, even Panasonic's D-snap bundle. Someone should try digging up the patent relating to this design.
