I don't recall mentioning Beats. Also, I have no problem with Bass, if the artist intended for it to be there. I just feel like too many cans these days are coming out with the "U-shaped" FR curve that AnakChan describes in his review. I am not saying that these will be a poor quality set of headphones either. Just disappointed to hear that it is there. Also a little disappointed to hear everyone give a pass on it even though that is not what we were lead to believe these would be. Obviously I have not heard them(not that most people commenting have either), so there is a possibility that this is all for naught. Funny though. I say that I am now less excited based on the review and everyone jumps down my throat to defend a product that most people have not even heard yet. Settle down guys/gals. I may even like the headphone, just might not consider it the most accurate headphone out there.
I'm just waiting for a frequency response graph whether calling it one shape or another, too many times I've read people using the word "recessed mids" also where not appropriate. I have a feeling the graph will show very nicely balanced mids & highs. Wasn't some1 speaking of a 1.5dB or so boost in the highs only which isn't quite enough to call it U-shape in my book.
People may hear things differently, measurable data got more weight to it IMO which I base these things on, not on a couple of early impressions. Yes I'd be a little disappointed if it was a very U-shaped FR balance but I have a strong feeling it isn't and is more of a bass bump with neutral mids & highs-signature, I don't think so many people here would praise it otherwise either as V-shape is attractive to some people for sure but on a forum like head-fi it wouldn't recieve such a warm praise by everyone, based on my experiences.
