Now a more important question: can you do a Prestige with the Wizard wood on this faceplate, what is it called and how many rupees would it cost?

As others have tried to explain, off course there's bass in the K10. What I meant was, they won't artificially BOOST the bass, so you'll only hear the bass that's in the music. But unlike other "neutral" designs, the K10 will deliver eyeball-shaking, jaw-shattering bass if it's in the music. I don't think I've ever heard another headphone that did so well with delicate chamber music AND bass-thumping EDM.
Wow, that's quite a statement about the bass. Chamber music and small orchestras are my favorite kinds of music. It's something for me to look forward to when I get my K10 in mid-December. It's your review that sold me on saving up for this iem, Sorenslim.
Now that's for damn sure!
No, I did not refer to them as cheap products. I mentioned the company to be toxic. I also said I prefer them over the Roxanne.
The point I am trying to make is that if you want boosted bass in all of your tracks, including ones that shouldn't even have the boost in the first place, you're not going to find an answer by spending more money. In my experience, the higher the fidelity the better the bass camouflage effect.
Speaker systems are different because they have dedicated subs which you can tune towards your preference. The subs also hit harder and go lower because of their size.
If my posts are arrogant and patronizing, then so be it because all I'm trying to do is convey an idea that seems to fly past the people its intended for.
Let me make it as clear as possible: the Kaiser 10 has a very satisfying amount of bass WHEN the track was recorded so (dubstep, etc.). The Kaiser 10 does not produce massive bass WHEN the recording does not intend for it to (jazz, vocals, etc.). Like I said, cheaper products tend to display the same volume of bass on all tracks regardless of the recorded information so if you'd like to have such an effect, and not really care about the intricacies and minute details of a high fidelity headphone, there are other much more affordable options available to you that should satisfy your needs. Why buy a Bugatti Veyron if all you care for is 0-60 times and track performance, which you can get by spending a lot less via heavily modding a WRX STI?
I'm not trying to be an ******* but this is becoming a circle jerk and all I'm trying to do illuminate the enigma there is regarding the Kaiser 10 for those who haven't heard it yet.
This is my last post regarding this topic, I hope I've helped at least a tiny bit, @soundblast75. I hope you end up liking them when you receive them.
It's very difficult to sum the K10 up with one word. It's not warm, but it's not cold. It's not bright, but it's not dark. It's not fast, but it's not slow. It's not bass heavy but it's not bass light. I believe (this is my personal opinion) that the Kaiser 10 is the embodiment of 'balance.'
