Must be you. There's plenty of bass. I think what throws people off is that they display clarity and transparency in the bass range which is at odds with 90% of headphones. They are bright...when the recording is bright. I listened to some tracks that sounded bright and others that sounded warm and rolled off. So don't blame the messenger. Check your source.
I agree with this 100%. I suspect that a LOT of folks who don't like the tonality of these cans in the bass to mid-bass range don't like them because they're accustomed to thudding mushy bass that (as you point out) is found in a lot of headphones.
