I think I'm going to take a mini sabbatical from ordering items using Amazon prime's free 2-day. I ordered some stuff on the 21st from the FS forums, and they're still not here. I threw a mini tantrum when the USPS tracking said that they weren't even in my state yet. So, I'm not ordering anything else using 2 day shipping for a while so I can starve my newly discovered inner brat.
Pretty good review.
I don't think I'd agree with the assessment that there's grain over the whole spectrum. The reviewer even says it could be a source issue. Secondly, yes, the bass has a lot of impact, but I have a feeling this is accentuated by the Comply tips. I want to experiment more with different tips to see if I can't achieve a more linear sound which I think they're capable of. I don't feel the bass detracts at all from the midrange, and it seems very clean and well controlled.
I think I understand the overall signature. The variations can be attributed to tips, like you mentioned.
