Sounds about right.. The DT48 can extend quite low depending on what you feed it..
Off topic but I will say it.. I'd rank the 50's NAGRA's in the top 20 of the greatest dynamic headphones ever created. Sigh, flame me. Hey, if Jpod/N3rdling can say the DT48 is the worst headphone ever without listening to every good headphone I can make this statement. )
The DT 48 bass compared to other phones is light and unextended.
But if you listen to the DT48 by itself the bass actually suits the headphone perfectly. You wont get any slam/impact or sub bass extension with the DT48.
The thing is, many people naturally like a little extra bass and these headphones dont have that. There is no midbass hump typical to other headphones. Thats why they have so little impact. That and the fact they dont extend far.
One thing about the bass I like, it is transparent. It will come out of its shell if the song has lots of slam or extension. But its not like other headphones that are constantly bassy no matter the song.
