I personally don't think a house sound has anything to do with how dark or bright the headphone manufacturer tends to lean, but rather it's a more subtle character to the sound that is often found among a brand regardless of FR response.

 

Generally I agree, but as I mentioned, I think the HD600/800s represent the "best" that Sennheiser has put out. But with darker sounding headphones (i.e. HD650s), I think one can't pin down a Sennheiser "house sound"; very much unlike say beyerdynamic.

True, I found Sennheiser is one of the few brands I heard that doesn't really have a distinct house sound overall like I have found with AKG(a rather subtle house sound that I've never been fully able to describe but it's noticeable) and especially Beyer(even the darker and tame DT 150 exhibits the distinct Beyer sound). The HD 600/650 family sounds much different than Senns lower-end stuff, it's like a different brand to me, the sound character is nothing like the cheaper Senns I heard. The same with the HD 800 and HD 700 which while they sound somewhat similar to each other but doesn't sound like the HD 600 family and other Senns.

Depends on the model. DT 770 has (also due to it being a closed headphone) a certain boominess in the bass (which for me makes it a fun headphone). DT 880 as well as the Teslas have very well defined bass which I would not call boomy.

pretty much this, the DT1350 had pretty disappointing bass

 

I would use the word "wooly" before boomy though
