Am considering buying the HJE900 but have this nagging doubt in the back of my head created by the occasional review that describes them as everything I DON'T want an IEM to be (harsh, mids too recessed for rock, sibilance, overpowering mid bass, lack of soundstage). Furthermore, most reviews are glowing almost to the point of hype, which makes me start to take rave reviews with a grain of salt.
So are these simply FOTM? Or are they really that good? I'm not taking the price as any indication, since the IEM world seems to be littered with products that now sell at a fraction of their MRSP. The replaceable cables are nice, but not a big selling point for me since I've never had IEM cables go bad on me (call me careful).
So are there any folks out there who ended up disappointed by these after drinking the HJE900 koolaid?! I wanna hear all the horror stories (if there are any)! For the record, I'm also considering the Brainwavz M2/M3 right now.
