“On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the headphones dutifully reproduce powerful deep lows, and at top, powerful volume levels, there’s no distortion. But there’s deeper, more subtle bass out there, and recent recordings are starting to get clever with it in ways that many speakers and headphones aren’t equipped to handle.
For instance, on tracks with what almost seems like hidden sub-bass that takes a back seat in the mix—Sharon Van Etten’s new “No One’s Easy to Love” and Panda Bear’s “Dolphin” are two fine recent examples—the headphones lay down a foundation of sub-bass that seems like a magic trick. But it’s not about how much bass is happening, just how low in the frequency range the headphones can reach to push out the full range of audio. The entire picture is in the frame.”
