I like everything about them, and they somewhat remind me of the Thinksound ON2, which I also have and like. But they don't sounds like the ON2s. The Purplehearts simply are way too bass heavy for me. I also like the DT 770 Pro 80 ohm, the AKG K553 Pro, the K361, but I also find the K371s too bassy too. Audio Technica A550Z: too bassy too (that surprised me). Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I also like the Meze 99 Noir (Classics), Sennheiser 569, and AT M40x. M50x? too bassy, and I didn't like the clamping force. I've seen some comments that the CAL!'s are more balanced with less low end and more treble, so I just got a pair of those to try. Oh, Sony MDR-100A(AP), also too bassy.
So basically, everything is too bassy for you lol
The DT 770 Pro 80, AKG K361, Thinksound ON2, Meze Noir, Sennheiser 569s are all winners in my book. :-)
I get your point ..especially if the bass is bloated stripping away any details. I personally prefer transparency with a punchy bass. I'm with you on thinksound 2 signature. Best detail I've heard on such a low cost (now hard to find) headphone along with the NEW Avantone Planar (red ed) that just blows my mind in sound.
If you think thats bassy, try the hd599.
