Summary: I bought these headphones for the "enhanced bass" but was dissapointed. I'm not an audiophile or musician. I just want a pair of headphones that don't skimp on bass. I prefer the more fleshed-out sound heavier bass provides. Unfortunately I found these headphones to be the exact opposite! The sound was thin and brassy. (I only use them hooked up to my stereo.) Compared to the Sennheisers I've owned, these Audio Technica ATH-D40fs were downright nasal sounding.
