Very true... mostly.
Although there's obviously bass & treble roll-off on the PFs (at least on the PF IXs, the only PF model I've heard), bass, on the whole, is surprisingly capable, for lack of a better term. So, no sub-bass, rumble, etc., but that is one of the bleeding mysteries of the, er, bleeding PFs: How can their rolled-off bass (and treble) still be pretty satisfying?! Definitely not for everyone—and that should be a given by now (I hope!)—but are these 160Xs really only meant for 'mids-heads', I wonder?
Like I said a couple of times, these phones remain a bit of a mystery to me to this day.
