i was just playing around with the sound equalization setting on the computer with my sunrise xcited for the song (Harold Faltermeyer & Steve Stevens - Top Gun Anthem.flac) and i realised how much bass there was on the panasonic hje900.
i never thought of the hje900s as a basshead earphone until now i think they actually belong to that category.
i had to boost almost 90% of 60 hz, 170 hz and 310 hz on the sunrise xcited only to come close to the rumble of hje900's sub-bass and punchiness of hje900's mid bass but overall sound was already becoming slightly veiled and sibilant on random high notes and electric guitar sounding slightly thicker/warmer/muddier as well.
wow i cant believe i been a basshead all along :O
since my 1st pair of earphone ever was also a panasonic hje270, i was trained to love sub-bass. everything sounds so much more natural to me now that i can hear the vibrations of sub-bass, i feel so much more homely, like i've put on my panasonic hje270s again except that mids are eve clearer on the sunrise xcited which is a bonus :)
