The other pairs I have coming haven't arrived yet (they will tomorrow) but this doesn't sound accurate, some are saying the bass is fine and others saying there's none, you'd think there'd be a happy medium somewhere inbetween.
To the best of my knowledge Altone200 uses almost identical dynamic driver to H-300 and if you read that thread it's known to have a pretty decent low end (much like I hear my Altone) Mine do sound very close to H-300 low end volume but I think the different chamber, housing and ports are effecting it, because it is a little less than H-300.
Let me see what these other two pairs sound like, because it doesn't sound standard you should be hearing a decent amount of bass, there's too many reports from several people. The only other thing I can think of is some Altone are being made with a wiring issue (reverse phase on the dynamic driver by accident) because there's quite divided opinions. Sounds strange yes, but........
if worse comes to worse I'll send you my sample for your USA tour.
The bass should sound like what Brooko posted above with a slight boost all the way up to 100Hz.
Mine sounds like unity described it in his graph:
- sub bass almost non existent
- bass is nice on bass heavy tracks, on genres like jazz it lacks a bit.
- mids still incredible clear
- highs pretty smooth
- high starts to dip at maybe 10khz
