Indeed, "broadcast quality" emphasizes the low frequencies. That's why it's so hard to understand speech on your car radio when it's noisy. It helps a lot to just turn down the bass.

Indeed, After a song is mixed with extra bass in the studio, then has extra bass added by the station, and the bass is emphasised when rebroadcast on satellite radio, its all boom, boom, boom, and just noise. Turnig down the bass helps, but not enough to make the music enjoyable. Of course I have some high frequency hearing loss from 22 years working around jet engines (US Navy ret.). Even with hearing aids it's just noise now.
