Default Headphone (and speaker) bass test

I tried it with both my m50 and sr60. The m50 can go down to 30Hz, though there's some distortion. It can play and hold multiple distinct notes so long as they are above 30Hz -- though again, notes sound better at 40Hz.

My sr60...ugh. I can hear something with them at 80Hz, but even then it's distorted quite badly. They don't start to play decent undistorted bass until ~95Hz in my opinion. Which is why after getting my m50, they just don't sound as good as they used to. There's alot of information in the low bass in a variety of music, even songs where you wouldn't expect to find low bass in the first place.

Who else wants to test their system?
Incidentally, I also did a high frequency test, and found that I can still hear up to 17kHz, though not well - I had to turn up the volume to hear.
