These are the real deal, bass is tight and tunefull. I play bass and one of my main complaints is I texture of the bass notes. Many headphones allow you to follow the bass line but these are among the very few that allow you to hear the amp and bass used, for example a fender p-bass sounds really different from a j-bass and these really allowed for that difference to come through in the time I listened at CanJam.
I could really see these taking the place of most of my full sized headphones they are that good and for sound quality were right up there with the HD800s. The HD800s are very different but from a pure sonic enjoyment and transportability aspect I'd give these the nod. When I'm home I'm more likely to be listening to speakers 85-90% of the time but the JHs will give me reference quality on the go, in the office and when traveling all out of my pico!
So, these guys have big impactful bass. But how clear and precise did it sound? The bass on my UE10s is very good. But I do wish it were tighter and more articulate.
