I've got about 30 hours of burn-in on my pair, and last night did a solid 3 hours of listening. I do not notice any excessive sibilance. Like others, I wonder if some of us are more sensitive to it than others.
Rig is a Resolution Audio Opus 21 CDP into an Eddie Current Zana Deux. I did notice that the first listen, with no burn-in, the HE-5's were less than great sounding. Burn in has helped a lot and I am very happy with my purchase. I will be listening again tonight.
I have an MP3 I converted from the original FLAC file that is sibilant all to hell. How would I post it so that people can download it and listen to test what I am hearing?
I tested it and the FLAC original and they both are intolerable.
Start around the 1 minute mark and let the ear bleeding commence.
