Very accurate review to my ears, up until he talks highs/brightness but my hearing rolls off around 13K-14K khz (older ears than his). Still is different enough from the Diana v2 after 3 days of listening that I either go to the Susvara, TC, or keep both of these
I'm sorry to say this. But i don't know how much my opinion will change by next week. But the Elite is highly underwhelming to me. There is nothing that stands out that makes me love these. Every category is on mediocre. If I could turn the hands back I would of never bought these.
The only thing I’m 100% on anymore is that everyone of us has different ears, canals, & heads making these opinions just entertainment with a bit of identifiable truths for each of us. I don’t hear any of that in the highs but I’m nearly 50 and listened to music too loud for years.

I also take a look at headphone measurements of the Elite (including headphone measurement comparisons) made in our measurement lab at Head-Fi HQ using the following equipment:
