Question Fidelio X2HR upgrade

I have recently sold my HD 599's and I am using just the Fidelio X2's. I loved the HD 599 for their mid range and top end however they lacked bass. The X2HR's are great and have good bass however is is more mid bass and the mid and top end is good but not as sweet as the HD 599.

So is there anything out there that sounds like the sennheiser but with more low end bass?

My use is mostly music and Teams meetings.

how do they sound now after 100 hours burn in>?
i am astonished by Philips Fidelio X2HR. to the point that started re-listen to old CDs to find that everything sounds great!
i run them off a vintage SL-PG590 or HP8300 which has seriously decent DAC and amp.
in the past used the, much cheaper, Philips SHP8000. still, an awesome pair of headphones. sadly, the cable is permanently fixed so must be careful!
