It's an improvement but the sound is so different, feels like the scale has shifted higher and left the bass at home.
After comparing the two firmwares a bunch of times I'd say its obvious the bass has been reduced on 2.05, but to my ear the treble to a lesser extent has also been very slightly reduced along, with the mids, its like the gain on the sound has been set flatter, which is a good thing. It doesn't sound as "fun" , forward and punchy as 2.00. But It is a more balanced frequency response that translates dynamics such as loud/soft and slow/fast better as a result, which is one reason why it sounds more natural and "engaging" by being more realistic, aside from the slow filter improvement. IMO if 2.05 had any more bass it would become north of neutral. But that's just my imo, I've come from a ZX1 which had the leanest, tightest and most defined bass I've heard, so even the DX90 on 2.05 sounds extra full and impact full to me, yet still balanced.
