Haha yeah, I know what you mean, if I play some songs at really quiet volume, the weird FR and accentuations make them sound great. But as soon as I turn it up or land on some tracks (female vocals in particular) I have to rip them off my ears... Honestly, for the price, they're pretty inferior IEMs. The sound is fuzzy/grainy even without looking at the messed up FR. They just happen to be so fricken weird that they have a bit of a novelty effect for me. I've tried everything to make them palatable, but sadly they don't get much better. One of the only positives is that they fit pretty comfortably in my ear, but I can't keep them there for long cause of the sound.
