No, you said the bass was flabby and bloated which you can't back up as you haven't heard them. I have and there is a depth and extension to the bass which works for all genres. To my ears they are not flabby or bloated. I also talked about the great mids and highs but you seem to have conveniently ignored that.
Why should anyone take advice from someone who has never heard these iems and for this reason I definitely do question your opinion. To me this is the forum version of malicious gossip where a negative (or positive) opinion is continuously reiterated with no actual basis in fact.
Here is how it stands - I've heard these, as well as the IE8s, have you? Now that you've mentioned it, what is your listening experience? How many years does it add up to and in what circumstances?
Please see that I am asking you what experience you've had before I make any judgement statements on your ability to determine what does and doesn't sound good. Regardless, I would accept your opinion if you'd heard the phones because you are entitled to that opinion. However, without knowing anything about my background you've indicated that I am a noob to the audiophile scene and this affects my credibility. This is an arrogant approach ( an "I know more than you" attitude) and tends to support my supposition that you make comments without checking your facts.
