How forward is the female vocal on these? It looks like there is a dip at 2k hz would it make female vocal sound far/quiet?
Also bass start to drop around 70 hz would it be noticeable?
Thanks!

In my opinion vocals are fairly recessed on these. It's not bad when you're listening at high volumes though. To me the recess in the vocals makes the sound stage seem much larger because they do seem so distant. They are still clear at higher volumes, but distant
I don't notice any bass reduction until 30Hz or so but I'll be damned if they didn't change the frequency response curves since I jumped in on the original drop. The one they have posted now is more similar to the HE 400S whereas the original was more similar to the HE400I.

LOL hopefully they didn't do a switcheroo on this.
But mannnnnnnn that I might be a deal breaker for me, I have the habit to adjust volume based on vocal volume and on headphones that have recessed vocal I tend to blow my ear drums out without realizing it lol.
