I'm listening to it on a pair of HE-500s. In my opinion, these guys outperform anything even close to their price point. To outperform them you'd have to spend two to three times as much, putting you with an HE-6, HD800, or LCD (3/ X/ XC).
The bass response is fine. Actually, I couldn't ask for a better bass response at this price point. The Siemens E88CC performs much better than the GE 6BZ7 in the bass detail department. Also, there is less bass emphasis on the Siemens, especially in the mid bass region, which I like.
I'm just coming to realize that what I'm hearing is a bit of an analytical edge that I'm not used to experiencing on full sized headphones. I think time is my solution here. Even if it doesn't mellow out or I don't get used to it over time, I'm still happier with it than the GE 6BZ7.
