It's a little silly how threatened you guys seem to be. I'm not sure how invested in this odd ad-hominem mindset you are, but I'll address things at least so others can understand who wish to.
First, some corrections:
AJ, I've had two weeks with a set of SE5s that I get a perfect seal with, not vaccuum, not poorly sealed. if you were trying to imply I hadn't heard them, then that is misleading.
Mimouille, your personal attack is incorrect, I don't disagree with AJ automatically and even a cursory glance at reviews we've written for the same earphone, such as the 8.A, proves this. We agree on how we hear the 8.A, although we may not draw exactly the same conclusions from that-this is the point that Music seems to be unable to understand.
Now, Music, I am very different than you, I don't go in for fanboyism. I'm going to blow your mind now.
First, I have never said ANY earphone of any kind is perfect for everyone. And I have dissuaded people who have asked via pm from buying, at different times, pretty much every earphone I've heard. That includes the mg6pro, the 8.A, etc. I'll do the same for the se5, although it's one of the nicest earphones I've heard. Yes, it has some issues, too. I think Astral Storm has done a great job with a balanced review of it.
Further, I enjoyed the k3003 and I have enjoyed the 1plus2.
The problem is that people seem to personally identify with an earphone and become very upset over anything that is not absolute adulation. So, a positive, balanced review is perceived as a very negative one. For example, I enjoyed the ex-1000 a lot, but Music was upset and said I disliked it because it wasn't the be-all-end-all. It seems like an inability to accept nuance and a balanced take on things. The k3003, I liked with some caveats but based on how often Music brings up things that I, purrin, analixus, LFF ,etc. heard, he's still upset and of course that ends up being what's talked about. If he'd been cool about it, the whole issue of coherance between drivers would have been a much smaller presence on hf. Weirdly, one guy who was so upset over the coherency issue didn't even know what the term meant (he ended up trying to say that the k3003 had better coherence than single driver headphones). He was just mad that there was anything at all that was a criticism.
Meanwhile, for the mg6pro, it's not like any earphone is a sorry stand-in for a sense of self. You can like or dislike as you choose. Take Soundfreaq, he and I hear the mg6pro the same (here's the part which Music doesn't understand)-I think that's important because it means there is some consistancy and a basis for discussion (and we both have fully functioning earphones, etc.), but it doesn't mean we fully agree or have the same take. He likes some other earphones better that I don't like as much. It doesn't mean he hates the mg6pro, not that it matters, nor do I have to spend a hundred posts referencing his opinion. We both get to have balanced ideas and still like each other (not to speak for him!).
The se5 issue should be discussed as it has perhaps come out differently in PMs than on the boards so more discussion is welcome. If Gregorz has changed things for any reason, why not talk about it? Going into damage control only makes it look odd.
