It's nice to see other TC owners here. You can always eq things to your taste but I don't want to mess around with something that is new. Especially on rock music serious bass slam. So bass heads would love this headphone. Later on I might EQ it just a tad. I'm kind of a detail freak so I love micro details and sometimes find the bass getting in the way of it, I hear it just not as much as I'd like but still doing break in. I'm curious to see how the sound signature changes. There are times though ... where I'm blown away by the flawless detail. Kind of leaves you breathless especially on good recordings.
