Could it be that Bass Culture is in trouble?

Wayne&Wax has several posts and discussions jumping off from this post: Mobile Music & Treble Culture. With the proliferation of bad sound on iPods and phones, can we see a march towards treble in the way we consume music? Here are parts twoand three of the string.  It’s an interesting exercise, thinking about the ways in which the physicality (or lack of it) of how we listen to sound sound affect the way we hear it. Or should that be the other way around?
