no I think that the senns are great..they are fast becoming my favorite iem..and in a hury too..I like my heirs too specially when I'm listening to music for all the detail..for rockn roll the senns imo blow them away..don't get me wrong I do like the heirs alot they are just different..and speaking of detail I was surprised just how much detail they have and while keeping that nice hard hitting bottem end..can't wait for them to get up over 200 hours on them to see how they sound then..not really sure why anyone would bash any headphone / iem..I think it comes down to personal taste..maybe this person wasn't getting a proper seal...which is not that easy with these or he didn't let them burn in..either way I think he's wrong as I'm no bass head and like I said these are fastly becoming my favorite iem...the heirs have a really nice almost ballenced sound..I say almost cause there is a dip around the 4k mark that you really don't notice till you compare them to something a little more ballenced like the er4s or with the eq bump up the 4k a couple notches then you notice..but other then that they sound great..they to me are more of a treble iem with really tight fast bass..not a bass head iem by no means..they are very clear and very detailed yet they are a little on the dark side of things..the senns have great hard hitting fast bass nice smooth highs and the mids are ok too.. A little pushed back I think but that's part of the signature..when I got the senns I noticed rite away just how wide the soundstage is its quit amazing..where as the heirs are more in your face with a more narrow soundstage...they both are different in there signatures and you'll like one or the other or if your like me you'll like both for different things..when I want to listen to detail I listen to my heirs..when I want to lay back and just listen and enjoy the music without being critical about it I listen to my senns.. I'm not really that good at explaining this stuff but I hope that helps..like I said I'm loving these headphones juat wish I had of bought them sooner they are fantastic..
No this person used to sing praises about how fantastic the IE80 was...until he got his Heir. I was a bit baffled at the sudden change of heart but I guess horses for courses really. Anyway I am glad you appreciate both the Heir and the Senn for what they really are and not any other questionable reasons.
