The bass is too muddy and nasty loose on beats for my tastes. I have a pair of the BASS HEAVY HA-M55X's and JVC really did a nice job. No distortion with an E11 amp at full volume, and the bass is nice, clean, loud, doesn't drown everything out, and makes the cans jump off your head. 50mm drivers, 32 ohms of impedance, 8hz-23000hz. Much better alternative with cleaner bass, slightly shinier treble(slightly), and much clearer mids. And at 50$, they are fantastic. They have decent build quality too. Look into em. Monster is my second favorite company now, after looking into their newer models after the split from beats. They produce arguably the most beautiful cans ever. The diamond tears. Their other designs look futuristic, have a flatter response suitable for a lot of genres. Such as the diesl vektr's, DNA's, legacies, and the N-Tunes. All priced when I looked it up at around 120$. I tried N-Tunes, and they have really nicely defined sound. Bass is controlled, treble is very sparkly and good, and mids are not drown out by either, and are very hearable. A little bit v shaped response, but they did a nice job.
