I listen rap hip hop, things in the top 40 or like stuff that makes it onto billboard top 200. As for the sound it doesn't sound as upfront as the m50s however I've been told its a property of open back headphones. To compensate I turn up the volume. However in terms of sound quality they're almost the same which is ridiculous. As for the sound details you mentioned I'm not too familiar with them , I'm very new to the audiophile scene, but initially the bass sounded a bit off which I first noticed when I was listening to MAAD City by Kendrick Lamar waiting for the bass to drop around 13 seconds in and it was like nothing happened. But that problem was fixed after some eq presets.
