XB1000 bass is toppled by XB500 and XB700. I had the XB1000, too bright and lacking a fun bass, all marketing.
The dx000 series all extend quite low but lack the nessary dip in their response where the ear is most sensitive (4-7khz) this dip is important for a headphone. This causes them to sound hard or almost bright. I've heard the d2000 and d5000, while decent headphones I found them not being for me. Also, their distortion in the sub bass area is bested by considerably cheaper headphones that don't sound quite has hard.
These have too much distortion.
I agree with ur generalization with orthos generally having lower distortion in the lower freq. I'm assuming this is also linked to their larger driver size. However you are incorrect with your idea of dynamics. M100, UE6000 and a few other dynamics can contain well executed 40mm or 50mm drivers that have low distortion at extreme sub bass levels (down to 20hz). A post above contains measurements for these cans.
Ue6000 are not v shaped at all (active makes a bit of a v). They are a pretty easy to listen to, forgiving can. I really considered these but wished for a bit more sub bass. (still looking for a warm can with lots of sub bass). http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/LogitechUE6000passive.pdf
Just to identify a few headphones here:   http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/UltrasonePRO900.pdf Looks like it could be a bit bright or hard sounding based on a few of its bumps. It also appears to be more mid bassy. Way too much distortion in the bass area too.   http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/SonyMDRXB700.pdf The bass here looks nice (to me) maybe a bit of hardness between 1-2k? Still tempted.   http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/SonyMDRXB500.pdf I have these,...
Is there a big chunk chipped out of those m100s? Looks like its glued together or something. Can you take a few more pictures of that?
I *REALLY* like my bass below 100hz. I fear the 700mkii and Q40 are a mid bass oriented can which sort of turns me off. For all of you talking about the DT770s which version are you referring to? The 770 80 ohm has considerably more sub bass than the other 770 models. The Sony XB500s have lots of bass, but its more mid bass AND the bass bleeds into the mids too much for me making a boxy sound. Would the XB700s clean this up? I worry about the XB700s treble peak...
Philips X1 are one of my fav looking cans. BTW this is an open proposal to the beautiful woman wearing them.   
Bump
