Its for me at least. I never really rely on reviews because what others hear is not necessarily what we perceive to hear. I just feel that it lacks what make an earphone good for classical music, and the S-EM6 is quite a disappointment for me personally because the sound that it produces is not on par with its technology used and does not equate to the price. But for others who listen to other genres of music and who value sound qualities other than the mids, they might find the S-EM6 to be a gem.
But I have to say that ALL of this are my PERSONAL experiences, based on my personal musical taste, so take it or not, its really up to you. I just thought of contributing a little because I found fxsm's musical taste to be similar to mine.I think it has recessed mids because I've heard some IEMs with very, very, lush mids, such as the FitEar 335 and the FAD Piano Forte series, therefore I found the S-EM6 to be lacking in the midrange.
