I recently bought some bose around ear headphones for recording. And looking at some reviews it seems many people say they boost low frequencies too much. Are they really that bad and is it worth returning them cause they sound fine to me.( to people who have experiance with these headphones.)

well if they sound fine and you already bought them theresa no point in returning them

thing is will they affect my recordings by sounding off when through different equipment

Yes, yes they will. Because they boost the bass your recordings will likely be thin compared to something where you used more tonally flat monitors.

Everyone else who has replied is demonstrating their lack of knowledge on the topic, ask in Riffs and Recordings and see the sorts of responses you get.

Actually, no. If you want to do some proper recording you'll need studio speakers. When I started out I really thought expensive half open headphones would do. Well they don't.
If you're going to do some bedroom recording, sure, a nice pair of cans will do. But headphones will never do for good recordings. Headphones are directly connected to your head and the sound vibrations will be limited and confined.

If your sound device colours the frequencies you won't get an objective idea of your recording. Ideally the sound you hear is exactly flat. Once it sounds good on your studio monitors, you take your recording over to several different audio systems to ensure it sounds good on all of them.

If your cans colour the lower frequencies you will adjust your recordings, since you want it to sound good. Then you take it over to your car audio and tada, the bass is lacking. So what I can suggest as a temporary solution is testing your recording on several systems, just to make sure.

As for Van Gogh, sure, everyones taste differs. But a recording that isn't balanced will sound crap by anyone's taste.
