Too much bass is not a good thing though, especially if the lower midrange is also boosted, and vocals sound too warm. The reviews I read on the HAS4x seem better than those of the HAM5x, and the HAS4X is also much less expensive. The reviews claim the HAS4x is much better balanced than the HAM5x. The trick is getting the strong bass, but also getting a relatively untainted midrange.
Darkside, you don't find the vocals on the Sony XB-500 to be too warm?
