I think this is where headsets need to focus on when it comes to bass. Sub bass is infinitely less obtrusive to the rest of the spectrum compared to mid bass, so they should emphasize that, instead of the actual thump. It's a sort of 'loophole' for bassheads that want clarity everywhere else. Of course, if you just want consitent headpounding, then I guess you can enjoy that obtrusive mid bass, while sacrificing vocals and overall clarity.
