Yeah, considering the fact that neither my receiver nor E7 could drive the Q701 worth a darn was probably the main reason i returned them. That and the fact the soundstage was outta whack, and it was uncomfortable. Although the fit wouldve probably been better With time.Then again I had the same feeling of "OMG BASS EXISTS!" going from the B2->HD600. And HD600->Eph-100 and finally eph-100->car stereo w/sub, but SQ starts to go down from the HD600...
Anyway... /random off-topic-on-forum anecdote.
I have a pair of re0... I don't actually find it bass light o_O and it's supposed to have less bass than re-ZERO.
Just need some really good seal to get that bass, which is my biggest headache; IEM tips and me just don't mix well.
Hence I am getting rid of all my IEMs somehow. gah.
One of these days I'll throw it in the FS forums for like $25 or something.

Yes, golden rule. Also golden as in hard to achieve... that's why people's opinions can help.
Sadly, everyone is entitled to their opinions, and the lack of subjective data doesn't help.
That's why I like graphs. I read people's reviews, I put more faith in some people's views than others, but I won't find myself quoting specific people as reference because... everyone's tastes are just different.
From what I've been seeing lately, stuff people find bass light = I don't find it particularly light; I seem to be sensitive to bass.
From what I've been seeing also, treble spikes can get to be pretty easy, and give me headaches.
At least knowing this I have a pretty good idea of what to translate from people's review.
BUT our ears do adapt to specific sound signatures. Give me long enough and I'll come to find Q701 sound normal, but that stage is still weird. I feel like sound it coming to my ears in a vortex bowl, and it's making me dizzy =_=;;
