Yeah, I've seen that - with guitarists and drummers, too... That's one of the many reasons why I love running wireless - I always get out front during soundcheck to see what things sound like...
Like the saying goes - if you're hearing yourself really well on stage, you're probably too loud... I play just loud enough to be able to hear what I'm playing - which also includes adding in a bit more mids than I care for, rather than jacking up the volume - if I'm having trouble hearing my notes...
