To clarify the over-the-ears thing, I don't actually use the silicon guides - the cables sit securely without them. YMMV of course.

With regards to filters - you should read this. Seems that to achieve "perfect bass", what they've done is to remove mids and highs (hmm...) which is why I prefer to just EQ the settings I want. That sort of thing is easy with a Cowon .

As regards "too bright", I'm not really the right person to ask, but I can say they're definitely no "basshead" phones, certainly in comparison to my Atrios & HD-25s. As for hissing, can't say I've noticed [1] - that might well depend on the player. Also the PFEs are known for clarity - so I suppose that could include enhancing any imperfections.

[1] - though bear in mind that I use a D2 - a player known to hiss, so my advice should be taken with a pinch of salt.
