The impact from the bass does not go directly into your ears,but dances around your ears,so lushy and textured the bass sounds,so much better then my Q40's where i could not follow the basslines like i can on the WS99, i hear things i never heard before,like basslines going from left to right and it's so more unique and fun sounding then Q40's which is a beast but sometimes just too much....This WS99 is not as powerfull in mid and subbass like Q40's,it's just beneith it....And what it brings it does it with extreme detail, punch, texture and speed and of more quality then any headphone i owned.The way the bass impact sounds and feels/vibrates on your head is just pure awesomeness And...
