The privilege to just sit back and enjoy the music with absolutely no complaints about the headphone's sound signature is sublime indeed.
Exactly why I am sitting and pulling out my hair with my mind!
I have the J$'s and the sound just isn't the same.
EDIT: Just switched. Happy smile on my face Maybe I'm gonna make some more holes. Will they sound more full with more dampening, because what I need is a more full sound?
Sound over comfort, as always, anyway. Now I remember why buying the etymotic hf5 (aka. brainplugs)
Another EDIT: I find it funny how the vocals seem warm enough, but still need more weight and body. A bit more deep bass and a bit less of the high mids, and I think the sound would be PERFECT.
