No, because it's just not true. Timbre in DDM2 are far from being below average, smooth, clear, sibilance free-yes, below average-no. From what I read here about these, they are more similar to DDM 1 than DDM2 which are more balanced and not that bass heavy. What about soundstage in these 'look a like ddm2' iems? DDM2 has great, open soundstage.
I said average and maybe a tad above in timbre based on the IEMs I've tried. I agree it's smooth, decently clear and sibilance free but having a good timbre involves more than this. Timbre is about the tone color of the IEM if you will, an IEM can have a peaky response prone to sibilance while still having good timbre (Example: CKM99/HJE9000). It has a lot to do with the materials of the diaphragm and housing being used for dynamics. Another thing that affects the DDM2s timbre is the grain around the midrange, I think crossovers show their flaws more with dynamics based on my experience with the two Radius IEMs.
