The rub? Bass isn't missing, it's not the leader like many of the popular phones. If your hip-hop and rap oriented? I would look elsewhere. If like me? Classical and Jazz and Blues or Bluegrass etc..... this is a phone of phones. Revealing is a double edge sword, one length of blade would reveal the source material, yet the first edge or leading cut reveals the chain in front. Your hearing gear before material...... Good fortune for some and flat ugly for others.
You can have more than a single phone or system.
