Verdict: still has very deep thick subbass, with a smaller midbass hump. Midrange less recessed thought maybe still down 1dB. Upper mids don't have the sharp 'edge' that makes female vocals shine (may be a good thing for those sensitive). The treble is similar to the TFZ 5 but less peaky / sharp -- similar in the way of extension, but smoother. I.e. not detail monsters. Overall -- there are two options on massdrop. The $119 for the B2 WITHOUT detachable cable is a better buy than the B2M WITH detachable cable. Enjoyable sig, and $119 isn't that much for what I'm getting. But at the $199 price point, I would get the Mee P1 instead.
