Bassier yes. Sfs. Corecools without his tape mod is crazy. Too much bass believe it or not. Controlled it aint. But probably the bassiest earphones I have ever heard in stock configuration. Then there is the Philips SHE9750.. The bassiest philips earphones on the cheap. But a bit of a warning. These also happens to be the worst sounding Philips earphones.
These look kinda cool but don't let that clear silicone covered housing fool you. You will get nastiness,ie your hamburger smudge, ear wax sweat, unnatural oils, fungus and other growing bacterial, all over the housing as it is made of SILICONE!. Do not mistake these for an upgrade to the SHE9700. Nope. Nothing says your hifi like having a ginormous mid bass hump and absolutely no venting in the housing to retain all that resonance. So this is how it sounds if you sealed your buddies Honda with them nasty subs with all the windows up. Highs? Mids? There is none. It is all about knocking out that bit of earwax and getting a nice headache doing it. What was philips thinking in making these? I have no idea.
Maybe they wanted to reproduce ATs PRo700Mk2s. Which also sound very similar.
Dark dank and musty, with a thick bass note and what seems to be highs and mids that float somewhere in the sound. Somewhere in there you will not hear any type of precision or micro details. Actually there are some. It is from the headphones clamping your head so hard. You will be able to hear your veins pop on your forehead.. Nothing says hi fi like getting an aneurysm while getting your head pounded in with dank bass.
A little update on the Onkyos. So it seems the 3rd party vendor we bought the earphones from actually sold us the earphones without actually getting them in stock. How nice. This is the reason why I don't have them in my ears. I hope early next week.
