You are fully entitled to your opinion. I personally think the "bass" is decent on the 25s. It not of the quality and amount as the Beyers t5p or what not, but I think it actually does show the recording for what it is. Listening to the 25s right now, skipping through a bunch of electronic tracks. While there is a slight emphais on mid bass, its not over powering and all the sub info is quite accurate. But lets not forget, these are what - 200 dollar headphones? What do beats cost and how much more bloated is the bass? Not even talking about mids or highs here.
Well the hd25 are praised on the basis that they are accurate (which I disagree), while the beats headphones are praised on the basis that they are enjoyable.
So what ? The hd25 could be more accurate, and you'd still find people enjoying more the beats headphones.
I'll also restate that the demo I've done on the store of the beats headphone was limited to completely assess their sound quality, but I liked what I've heard.
I'm pretty sure, that paradoxicaly , the hd25 would beat the beats solo with classical music, even though it's not supposed to be the best use of both headphones.
