    I have just got my AKG 450's. I do like them. But the performance is not as amazing as i thought they were going to b after Everyone saying how good they are. I am not an expert at all with headphones, i just like music. I had a £15 pair of jvc running in ear headphones ( as in right in the ear), and i cannot say these akg's are any better. I listen to a mix of music, dance being one, and was hoping for amazing bass. Do you think i have a duff pair? They do go loud though, so its not tinny or anything. Or do you think i am i just expecting too much? I am happy with them, and will keep them, just expected more. Will they get more bassy over time?

    Judging by the Innerfidelity measurements, this headphone should have near perfect bass, flat down to nearly 30 hz. It would not have a "bassy" (i.e. colouration) sound, but would have a good high-fidelity bass sound, which is much better.
