I would call Clear a fun headphone for various music genres because I liked listening to pop music with it. It's bright sounding without being harsh. Or vivid. Response is definitely toward neutral. I'm into clear sounding headphones, and Clear fits the bill. It's got a response you can't dislike, and certainly won't find any weirdness with the response. I don't like warmth or hazy, or bass crazy. At the right price I would snag one as it's a headphone I'd keep around and put to use.
