Not really. Honestly imo, if you are driving them well with a good source, there isnt much to miss. The Eikon do have slightly more bass on the whole, but the Auteur are by no means a bass light can. What you lose in quantity, you make up for in quality. The Bass on the Auteur is slightly tighter and to my ear sounds more controlled. It's very rare for me to go "gee I wish these had more bass" Pretty much the only times that happens is when the recording I am listening to has a master that is light on the bass to start with and you can't hold that against any headphone. Long story short, nope, the bass on the Auteur is amazing in its own right.
