Yes I just find it weird for the reasons I mentioned above.
If a headphone does something badly enough there is bound to be a review somewhere... Most likely here but definitely some at Amazon and Google...
ATH-900X? Like what, 2 negative comments about the bass a bit too boomy sometimes, treble maybe a bit too hot at one point?
If anything it was because the headphone was found too exciting one way or another.
But no boring, bland, lifeless... None of that regard...
You guys might be forgetting about perspective.
At one point I thought the ATH-M50'S were all I needed. Not long after I tired some other cans. Going back to the M50s left me wondering wtf I was thinking.
The more you get to try different signature and qualities of headphones, the more your perspective changes on what you perceive as "good".
He'll, joker just did his 300th review. It was on the JH13 PRO FP and it changed his perspective on a number of aspects of SQ and what CIEMs are capable of doing.
Point being, MLE's perspective and tastes, (as a result), are simply different.
As mentioned above, use reviews to narrow down those headphones that seem to be what you want and then try them yourself.
There are countless times that certain rigs did not match at all what I had expected based on
