I think the bass in stock configuration is not bad at all. With the right amp, (currently my Apex Glacier) the (mid)bass actually has a really nice texture. I think my ATH-W1000X are probably my favourite "just listen to the music" headphones. I've just really been missing these for the past few weeks when I boxed them up and I even thought I might sell them, but it's just not quite the same with my other headphones. These can really get my feet moving. Toes tapping. Just really musical.
Yea I'm glad you like it stock :D
I rember that for ME stock bass was nice for edm but TERRIBLE for other music, so after my mods, I do wish it had a little more bass for EDM BUT it is SO PERFECT for what I call "normal" music. FOr music that I prefer balanced, the w1000x are top notch :D I'm still impressed how well imaged and wide the sound stage is on them even Single End out of my Pb1 and Hm801 ;O
So yea I reduced the bass, I did that mostly with the L3000 pads, which TIGHTEN the bass a lot of remove a GOOD bit of deacy
Also how do the J$money pads sound? More or less bass than stock?
