MC5 sound "boring" compared to Grado SR-60

  1. xluke
    Hello,
    I recently got some etymonic mc5 headphones.  They seem very well built which is a huge plus but they sound a little flat, especially when compared to my grado sr60s with senn 414 pads.  I realize we are comparing apples and oranges to some extent, but am I just hearing (and enjoying) the classic grado coloring of music and/or is there another IEM out there that I should try?  As a disclaimer, I am only on hour 4 of the burn in on the etymonics.

    Thanks!,
    Rick

    The Ety MC5 is detailed, but I found it a little boring too, it just doesn't have that WOW factor.
