From the legend himself:
"You know, the MOE did start out around an 8.5 like 3 months ago but the more I listened to it the more the upper midrange bothered me. I ended up listening to the VSD1S more despite the VSonics' sibilance so I couldn't in good conscience give the MOE a higher score."
I agree with this. It is a bit harsh without an EQ cut there.
Don't hold your breath though, you'll suffocate waiting...
