I listen to classical with bass boost ON! I feel like it's natural because if you've ever been to an orchestra, you will realize that yes, there is a lot of bass. But then when you listen through headphones the bass isn't there and so I believe that bass is just naturally attenuated from our equipment and 'natural' isn't natural at all, it's bass-less and it bugs me. Classical sounds alot more enjoyable and realistic with bass on, it feels as if I'm right in front of the concert.
With that being said, hey JDS labs! Your C5 amp is my favourite, but I was wondering if you guys are considering creating an amp of the same quality (or better) as the C5, but with a 9 or 12db bass boost option... No I'm not crazy, and I already have the Z02 and don't like its poor quality.
I agree and dis agree -.- SHAME on you, if you want the EPIC bass of Classical listen to a Beyer Dt 990 WITHOUT bass boost, as the can has a SUPER great MID BASS hump that's very tight and well textured... but I do agree to a point. Classical is better with a tad more bass than neutral, point in case the Akg K550 can't compete with the Beyer Dt 990 Pro's classical delivery!
That being said, I'm having the bass boost on my C5 halfed, it's a touch to much for me!
