In my personal opinion I can’t really tell the difference. I am using a Sennheiser HD 408 and the stock Samsung earbud that came with my unit.
With my Sennheiser headphones I can’t tell the difference because the bass of this headphone is one of the best I have and with my Samsung stock earbud, it has mediocre bass and I feel no effect especially with deep bass music like Electronic genre.
