I think your brain is used to bright sound, and you just need to let your brain get used to NT-6 over time, and when you go back to UERM, you'll hear brightness. Once you find that amp that can bring NT-6 to bring out it's characteristics, it will hit you. Good luck!
Don't get me wrong, it can look like I'm complaining about the quality of the highest rated in-ears as they sound like crap ;) No, it is not like that - they are amazing in every way. I do believe the right source is very important and can reveal big difference. But on the other hand Audioquest Dragonfly is in my opinion not that bad DAC and sufficient AMP for those CIEMs to reveal their capabilities. Especially when the comparison between UERM and NT6 is done under same conditions. On the same setup UERM are able to play some frequencies, which I clearly miss on the NT6 (highs) and vice versa (missing some sub bass on the UERM).

When I put both graphs next to each other, it looks like the NT6 pro have different progress of the high frequencies, but the roll off seems to start at the same point. So it can be the answer - for the UERM if I'm not wrong, it extends almost to 20k.
