Question

Can anyone recommend comparable earbuds with similar bass?

I currently own these and like the bass in them. I feel like they're a little too flat and the crash in the drums is too diluted or drawn out. Can anyone recommend any earbuds than can do this better?

Maybe if you change the settings from what ever device you are using. The bass may be set too high and your treble set too low.

Being one whose hearing is not substantially damaged yet, I would submit that the real output is probably flat. Decrease your treble output or increase your bass output to make it right. Check your hearing for high end loss first. Then, realize that low end frequency response is normally a problem if improperly fitted earbuds are used. Shove it in, bud....:))

Talking strictly inner ear headphones, I can say Sony's MDR-XB60EX have superior bass than these, and you can do even better because these are not Sony's top of the line. They are also cheaper.
These BOSE are about the comfort, certainly not the sound, although is still better than average.

Just a reminder, eveybody's hearing is different. These are my recommendations for deep bass, extended frequency response, and sound accuracy.

Try the Monster iSports. There's 3 different ones: the Immersions, Intensity's, and Strive. They are pretty much the same headphones, but with different tips and accents. They compare to the Bose ie2's. They arent as refined, but they have more thump to it. The strive are the cheapest ones @ $70, but I didn't like the way the tips felt. A plus is that since they're dedicated workout headphones, theyre sweat proof!

Question

Are there any other earbuds anyone can recommend that are comparable in bass but offer better treble sound?

Not sure if treble is the correct terminology. But with these earbuds it is difficult to hear drum snares. Can anyone recommend comparable earbuds that can do this better?

Yes, the ones that come fitted ordinarily are the medium ones. But they come with small and large inserts as well. Note that your ears might not be the same. Experiment with perhaps a small in one ear and a large in the other, encompassing all combinations. You'll find the right one. These buds are awesome!

Bose sells them at their website, along with a 20" extension cord for these short cord headphones.
I suspect you can find them online in other places.

I'm not sure if Best Buy will replace, but Bose would! I cannot remember what happened to one of my products I purchased, and it went beyond the warranty. I contacted Bose and I received a replacement right away without hesitation. You may want to contact them or start with Best Buy to see if they will honor warranty!

Yes they will, I used them with a 4 gig shuffle, 8 gig touch, and a 16 gig Ipad. However, the best sound however comes from the Phillips 8 gig mp3 player I own. I still own the touch and ipad, so I know what I am talking about.
