Remember, ClieOS is human too, he will give IEMs that matches his sound preference better scores.
I think ClieOS gives dynamic IEMs better scores than BA ones, while ljokerl is the opposite.
for e.g. ljokerl: GR07<B2, ClieOS: GR07>B2.
For me, I like the B2s WAY better, but i still love my MH1C
Not to put words into |joker|'s mouth (okay, may be a little and hope he doesn't mind). I do believe, while |joker| and I both prefer an analytical sound (and we both love RE272 for that reason), we score things in a different way. At least IMO, he tends to rate more on technical ability, especially on detail retrieval and overall resolution (my own observation), I tend to rate not just on technical ability, but also deduce rating based on the flaws I heard (and as I have mentioned in my concise comparison, some flaws, such as sibilance and severe muddiness, will affect rating more dramatically than strength). So while B2 has excellent treble extension, the bass extension leaves me wanting for more. The overly aggressive upper mid / lover vocal is also a major weakness IMO, as it turns people away more than having a weak treble. Even though GR07 too has a slight peak on upper vocal, the fact that it is lesser a problem when compared to B2 and also not an issue when listening in lower volume (which is how the IEM is tuned) let me to prefer it over B2. To me, while GR07 doesn't present detail as good as B2, it presents less flaws while still maintain better end-to-end reach, That's the reason why I rate it higher. In a way, I guess I tend to rate for the overall balance instead of a particular aspect., or perhaps I am trying to achieve a balance between the two.
However, as you have said, each and everyone of us listen to things in different preference, so it has less to do with right or wrong but more to do with which review is better fitting to your own preference and interpretation.
