I think discussing and getting to the bottom of why a sizeable number of people distancing away from 335 due to the double woofer is quite constructive to be honest. Especially if during the conversation we can bring out which genre people think the 335 is good/not good at as a point of reference. As I said, I think the 335 is perfect for Jpop and Kpop, so which genres people think the 335 is "too much" when they are demoing them?
Now I understand the love of the 335 for you. Sounds like you have the perfect CIEM for yourself, in my opinion.
The extra bass probably makes up for the inadequacies in mastering for some Jpop and most of Kpop. Lord knows Diana Krall or Alison Krauss would stop making music knowing someone out there was using a 335 or J16 listening to their music.
Personally I would rate the Fitears, MH334/TG334 > C435 > 333 > Some other brand. I wouldn't spend that kind of dough for the 335. Too much money for something that would give my head a pounding after ten minutes. Owning a TH900 and EDM being one of my favourite genres, I do love my bass just not this.
No offense to 335 owners here.
