I get 'em. I really don't mind a gently rolling-off bass; lots of cans have it.

27% (34 votes)
I really can't tell what's going on up there.

Aurisonics Rockets raise the bar pretty much across the board. In addition to superb sound quality and comfort, they provide tank-like build quality with water resistance and 5-year warranty, plus bonkers noise isolation.
