Of course, opinions vary and in this regard I feel that the bass response on these headphones is better than suggested by this review. I've owned a pair for just over a year and the sound improved over time. I think this is a prime example of how "burn in" can make a significant difference in a headphone's sound quality. The bass is deep and satisfying. I frequently use the Downtowns to listen to EDM, Trance and Dub Step. I agree it is not the type of bass that could literally rattle one's head but it is nonetheless Deep, Soothing and Enjoyable.
