As for the bass 'switch'...Does it just reduce bass or does it open up the sound more as well?
I know right, just don't be pointing any guns at me. I'm just tired of the HD-25s... They never get any use out of em...
It's a 4 level switch. As you may have guessed, it goes from bass lightest to bass heaviest in 4 step increments. Bass light is actually REALLY bass light, I really didn't like it. I liked the 3rd highest setting the best because it didn't give me overpowering bass like the 4th step gave me, but it seemed to hit the sweet spot in tonal balance. I felt that as you increased the bass, the sound started to open up, but as you hit the 4th level, things started to sound a bit muffled for my tastes. Overall, a great headphone with a really unique personality. Also, it's very comfortable, which is a winning factor against my HD-25s. But considering how the HD-25s are supra aural, it's kind of unfair to compare the two.
