Am I basically looking at a better low end frequency response to grow accustomed to?
To quote Rod Gervais, "Effective low-frequency control can smooth things out. After being treated with effective bass traps, the bass that is heard is the true bass from the recording or mix. In mixing, the guesswork is minimized, and mixes translate to other systems much better."
Proper treatments in your room should assure that you won't need to 'grow accustomed' to the new sound, but that you should be able to hear better mix decisions faster. This is also why people buy expensive monitors...not to grow accustomed to them, but to reveal things faster so their work is lessened.
Note that with foam treatments you won't get much bass control. With the amount of broadband absorption that is normally necessary to get the room sounding great, you will likely find you won't need any extra high frequency absorption. We did a test on foam vs. our standard 244 Bass Traps. You can see the difference: Testing Acoustic Foam Bass Traps
