Haha! I've been waiting for this day. Yes and yes. The ClarityOne ECW1o2.
I picked up the EB110 in-ears at a stellar price and enjoyed them quite a bit (still do in fact). A local Staples had ClarityOne's ECW1o2 headphones on clearance, so I decided to pick em up. How bad could they be for 30 CAD, especially when the EB110 is so good? Ho ho...
Weird? They sure are. The soundstage is monstrous and airy and they have this massive gap where the mid-bass should be. Treble floats around in this odd place between distant and forward. Mids are about the only normal part. The sub-bass though. That's where the mid-bass went. The two got together for one monster sub-bass jam and as a result these things seem to rumble for the sake of rumbling. The ECW1o2 is the epitome of feeling bass, not hearing it.
They offer a very visceral, unrealistic, off-putting experience that still somehow manages to be enjoyable, for me at least. I asked my cousin to give them a whirl. After one song he took them and off and gave me the best WTF look ever. What a terribly flawed, but still very interesting, pair of headphones.
I guess your welcome for posting this you finally get to vent your feelings
