See these kinda posts are what irk me. Head phone is all screeching treble and "it's so clear!" It has big bass and "it sounds like crap". Regardless of how velvety smooth and clean that bass is, if a headphone is bassy we get people like you saying it's crap. The bass on the M100 is amazing chiefly because for all its presence it doesn't impede on the rest of the spectrum. If you can't hear that difference, well... that's your fault, not the headphone.
