Demo'd this one at E-Earphones a week or so ago. Was quite curious about this since several users here were hyping it up and saying that these were transparent and extremely revealing, to the levels of EX1000 where it absolutely punishes bad recordings...didn't go in too excited due to the track record of the CL1. CL1 was very much trebly to the point that I was hearing nothing but treble.
The RHA CL2 was pretty trebly too. More warmth and slightly less treble than the CL1. The timbre sounded like a 60s radio to me. Not as harsh as the CL1, but I wouldn't listen to them even if they were given to me free of charge.
Since I have heard the CL1... I beg to differ... It sounds like you didn’t have a proper seal or deep enough insertion and/or a unit that wasn’t burnt in because the CL2 is nothing like the CL1, really, it’s like 3 leagues away from it. The EX1000 has harsher treble than the CL2, now upper mids are a different story it’s where it can get harsh with some recordings.
