I maybe understand you, it's probably similar things I experienced with for example Sony XB800/900. I can't either describe it better than you other than the quality of it was bad. It also has very punchy bass (which isn't the thing to blame as Q40 and Pro900 also has punchy bass for example but has great bass quality) but due to the bad quality in bass in particular for the Sonys, I hated them. To a lesser extent I could also speak of V-Moda LP2.
