Default Apparently I love a flat audio curve, am I a freak?

I have a couple highish end home audio systems at home and have never been an IEM fan. Marantz SR7002 Receiver with DynAudio Contour 5.4's downstairs and Marantz SR8002 Receiver with B&W Nautalis 805's in my mancave upstairs.

I've always just disliked every IEM I've owned compared to my home systems. I'd go as far as saying that IEMs were at best a bad compromise for mobility. I've owned a bunch of different $200-$500 sets over the years.

Well, I actually LOVE my UE in-ear Reference Monitors. I had a chance to listen to music in my mancave last night and actually adjusted my sub a bit to be less pronounced because I noticed it was a bit too much after getting used to the UE custons.

The UE customs have a flat sound signature. Why do IEM manufacturers feel the need to , "color sound"? It seems like it's that simple. Sound is played the way it is recorded and it sounds great. Who would have thunk?!?
