I totally understand someone not really being a fan of the Eterna V1's. I really do enjoy mine and think they are a great "rock out" sort of iem where I just put them in and jam. However, if you are looking for more than that there are better options out there, that is for sure. As for them being over hyped, I think it's just that for their particular sound they do a great job for the money however if one doesn't enjoy that particular sound signature than yes they would probably not be viewed too well.
I think with the Eterna's the term YMMV really applies quite strongly
Is it wrong that I'm wishing everyone would hurry up and get their SE215's so I can hear about them?
No sir, patience may be a virtue, but if you ask me it's a four letter word with four extra letters :)
