The bass in these headphones surpasses anything to be expected for a headphone of it's pricerange. The boomy feel provides that hardcore vibe that EDM/Techno/Rap listeners love. When EQ'd properly, these headphones provide an incredibly solid, powerful bassline, that doesn't muddy up the highs or mids. The highs are powerful, and quite unique, actually, though without an EQ or amp, they can sound quite bright, or harsh at times. The mids unfortunately are not as defined, and unless you EQ them, they will not deliver as expected. These headphones are incredible for you dubstep heads out there, though for you metal fans, it may be better to stick with another line. However, even if you own a high-end pair of headphones , these headphones are a great, fun piece to add to your hi-fi collection, and they'll have you appreciating deep, powerful bass. These headphones truly live up to their advertising, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
