If there does happen to be more bass its hidden somehow, because the bass on the sr80e is much clearer, more pronounced, more punchy, and deeper.
Compared to the sr80e the sr60e feels like the mid bass to upper midrange is more prominent but the treble and bass are chopped off. The sr80e seems much more 'open' because of this.
For $20 the sr80e is a definite upgrade and definitely worth paying for. I also agree with those commenting on a tin-sound with the sr60e. Something about the upper mid range makes it sound slightly off.
Just another reason why I cant put any stock in Tyll's reviews for my personal tastes.
