too? No one has agreed with you. 12db up is only usefull for loud stage use or bass emphasized listening. The jh13 is flatter in the bass than what 6db uo a 50hz would have you think. 6db up on a Etymotic 4p sounds about right in normal listening as long as it stays out of the lower mids. This is a response curve of nothing we're discussion (Westone1) form goldenears.
The reason it's here is to show you the green reference line of what sounds real or natural to them. Notice that the bass is up exactly 6db at 50hz from a measured flat response. I may have different ideas about things needing to be absolutely flat above 12khz like their model but I think the curve is about bass weighting. You already have a jh16 graph, there's an obvious reason why it has 4 woofers.
Take these all with a grain but the bass response on tests relative to 1khz tend to be similar even if the rest looks different due to weighting etc.
Here's a uerm:
To your original question, uerm is the better option.
