What music would you like to know about the bass on? Feel free to post a youtube video. For everyone reading: The HE1000s have something more akin to electrostat bass (to me at least). It seems to reach out and touch me with its accuracy. It feels more open and spacious, but the whole presentation isn't as impactful as regular planars. People are wishing that the HE1000s are more impactful like the HE6s and have played around with using different pads to get the same...
To bump your listing, click on "Bump listing" in the yellow band. 
Now you just need to click on "Close Listing" in the yellow band on the first post. 
 Enjoyment is a placebo. It must be outlawed We can't have people enjoying themselves in anything other than a completely rational manner now, can we? Sorry, but I can't reply seriously when you use the word "suffering". One may as well complain about people behaving like human beings.  Other than that. if you believe someone is advertising falsely, take it up with the appropriate authority I reckon.
 Search for my posts in this thread (Search Thread at the top, then Advanced Search - Search by username). It isn't thin-sounding, but it wont be as thick-sounding as your LCD-3s -- lighter in the bass, mids and treble.
I did the $5 mod. I like the HE1000s better still. It ends up being like owning a 'stat. "With the right $6k amp they beat everything else." If you don't mind a somewhat delicate presentation of the music, the HE1000s seem to be OK out of even a portable. I appreciate that about them. At the same time, I do keep turning the volume up wanting more impact, but have to turn it down again when I remember they simply wont give that as they are with my rig.
The balanced out is using double the circuitry of the single-ended in that amp. Audio-gd simply happens to like using that kind of design and it was made to be used in a balanced configuration.    I wouldn't worry about "experts" and whatnot beyond that. If you like the result, then enjoy listening. Every different designer has different ideas about what is good and bad.   The whole thing came about when HeadRoom made a balanced amp called the Blockhead, which was two...
You could always use the good quality ones some cable makers have had made for the AK240 and connect the last two connectors together.
Jeff: Indeed Moon Audio doesn't have a retail location, not that it would make any difference. I'm guessing if you broke your own unit, you'd have to buy a new one outright, hence the recommendation for a repairer? Because a shop sells a product, they aren't necessarily going to repair it, especially if there is no system in place for such a thing to do be done by, or on behalf of the manufacturer.
I feel they do in some respects, not others. The presentation is entirely different. The Ethers vs. the HE1000s are rather like the old K701 vs. the HD600s arguments. If I were to grade both headphones now, I'd give the Ethers 4.5 or 5 stars, because especially considering the physical design with the light-weight headband I cannot find fault with them. My only thoughts about the bass I can't really answer unless Dan made a pair with slightly stronger bass and I compared...
