After reading many comments and picking up a used pair and doing the bass mod (sticker removal), I have to wonder if there is a variation of how these sound stock. Some like mine being very harsh with anemic bass and other with les harshness and greater bass out of the box.
Stock I found them very harsh and very lacking in bass. Pretty terrible as others have stated. I also found the mod changed it drastically. Other report they sound great stock and find them bassy even. I have a hard time believing they sound the same as mine did and people licking them or thinking they are bassy.
many r buying their first pair of real headphones, they just didn't know what they are talking about.
That's also a possibility. Some people don't really have any reference to compare to and confirmation bias also comes into play as well.
Still I can't assume that every positive review of the stock sound is because "they just don't know any better".
