I will tell you my first impressions because i just received it today.
First of all i asked John Seaber to customize the cmoy for my m50's so it is not the originaly advertised.
With the stock chip OPA2227 the sound is quite similar to E7's sound but with a tiny enhance on soundstage.
What i noticed though is that the bass boost option makes the bass quite robust and powerful on some tracks that already are bassy and it seems like it doesn't match that well with the BBE effects if you crank up the volume above 60% on the cmoy and 80% on the J3(i am talking about really loud volume though).
The bass is distorted and boomy at high volume.
This is caused maybe due to the battery not being full and that the cmoy needs some burning in..
With bass boost on and at normal listening volumes you get good soundstage and nice kicking bass.
Also it goes higher on volume than the E7,much higher!
I really think i should give the cmoy more time to mature so as to get the best out of it..
Edit:After some hours of burning in this fracking little red box became a full sounded weapon that makes E7 look like a cheap toy....
