Here is my updated report. It will be shorter than usual due to time constraints and the lack of time I'm spending with these:
These are definitely going back to Amazon. I just packaged them up. I listened to them for several hours last night at work and just did not warm up to them at all. They are quite dark, and thick, not much separation or sound stage. I had a pair of Bose QC15's there and they could not keep up with those at all. For the type of music I listen to, these just don't cut it. They are good considering the size, but they are not $300 good. Not even close. The one area musically they shined was with newer recorded electronica music. I played some Massive Attack and the newly released remix of Radiohead and I finally could hear good bass and clear highs. But with my normal playlists everything was just very muddy. So these are not for me.
They also do shine in comfort. I usually can't wear universal IEM's for more than an hour and I wore these for several with minimal discomfort and even then just the inner ear itchiness I get. There was no pain from insertion. So from a comfort standpoint these are a winner.
So if you like electronica, ambient, dance/pop - that kind of music - then these might do well for you.
I guess it's on to the 1964-EARs quads for me!
