If I listen to them without any EQ, I find them to be very accurate, with rock, pop, singer-songrwriter, etc.. If there is bass in the song, they will produce it, but they do not overemphasize it,. and it does not in any way creep up on the mids or highs. If I put on some trance music though, there's abundant bass.
So basically, all round performance is still good in less-bass genres (except maybe in trance music)?
Since in the recommendation thread, someone else recommended me to go for the Creative Aurvana Live! headphones for better SQ.
For now, I leaning towards ordering the ATH-WS55. I'd have liked to get the 55i's but they're quite more expensive than the regular edition :(.
Both the CAL! and WS55 have the same price too. I hate these decisions >_<!
