That's good to hear! Er... know. What have you been listening to? I just listened to a 24/96 lossless version of Boots' C.U.R.E. track and thought the bass was, like you said, a bit boomy and loose. Or, he's got something funky going on in the sub bass region of that song. Both are possible and likely. Still, I think these are a massively enjoyable set of cans. I'm listening to Cage the Elephant's Ain't No Rest for the Wicked track and the imaging and decay on the guitars during the intro sound really great on these closed cans.
