I love these headphones, but i gotta be honest......I find the treble pronounced and a touch irritating in longer listening session, particularly if I am on an airplane and have the volume up. Still not sure I'm gonna get something else....there's too much i like about these. Do others have thoughts about this?
How about trying to dampen the highs a bit? The IE800 have metal grills at both the nozzle and tip opening, which makes it quite easy to dampen and smooth out their highs by placing a small piece of foam or microfiber cloth in between these grills.
