I'm pretty impressed. These are very clear and capable, just so long as all that you're asking them to perform is classical or acoustic. Any "real" bass and they fall apart, easily overwhelmed. Definitely not for EDM, rap, rock, really anything where you want to actually hear lower bass or have some, even minor, kick. A bit of equalization helps a lot, but, again, they're easily overwhelmed as far as bass goes. I listen to a lot of EDM, so they're not the best for my uses, but they still have my respect for their capability in other genres.
Bass is pretty strongly rolled off. They do take a bit to burn in. I noticed significantly stronger bass after a few days when using the foams. Sub bass isn't and will probably never be a thing with earbuds but the impact of kick drums and sustained lower notes is pretty decent now. I'm most impressed with the vocal and soundstage imaging.
