What makes you say that?Same bass driver. There's no indication the bass is any different.If you didn't like it (I also found the uerm to have roll-off in the bass), then the new one likely won't be for you. We'll have to see if there's improvement when people get a chance to hear it.

@Jude Thank you for taking the time to follow up with such helpful and detailed impressions! I appreciate it and now I look forward even more to hearing these earphones with a set of Sensaphonics custom-fit silicone sleeves!
