Don't think so, the Quads have always been described by all as being fairly bass heavy with smooth highs that are easy to listen to for hours. Not exactly neutral by the strictest definition.
And Joker doesn't have the Quads - he does have the V3 and the older 1964-T, so maybe that's what you were thinking of?
It seems to me that the V3 is like a junior version of the Quads, with slightly less of a bass boost.
I can confirm this is true . I just emailed 1964 for deciding between v3, Q and v6 yeasterday as i'm looking for more neutral IEM instead of bassy ones. One of the office manages replied that V3 and V6 are neutral with V6 is the most natural IEM they have while Q is considered to be bassy. (Dual low, dual mid, dual high of V6 already sounds like a balanced IEM to me compared with the only dual low of Q)
