Thump in bass is known as sub bass. The problem with sub bass is that it's not particularly well produced on headphones. Even with speakers, it typically takes a sub to really get any feel of realism. Personally i prefer more punchy, upper  bass. Which would be more suited to you rock tastes anyway.   If your heart is set on sub bass go for the XB 700. For bass, it really does a nice job. It doesn't totally ruin everything, and it can be bearable for listening to...
I would agree that a standalone amp is you best bet. I have found that some amp/dac combos lack a little extra umph. It makes good sense that this is simply derived from a lack of voltage. Many praise the driving ability of tube amp, but I honestly can confirm or deny that. But what I would like to do is offer an alternative. Perhaps a nice receiver might do it well. I've heard some vintages can have nice sound. I know my 10 year old Harmon Kardon really makes my HD600...
If it hasn't been said a million times before, it hasn't been said enough: Journey's Escape....and Frontiers for that matter.
I've been beating on stuff since the first grade.   Now a days I have a sexy 5 piece Tama Starclassic Birch-Bubinga kit. Oh man is she beautiful. Both in the way she sounds and the way she looks. She's a limited edition only 25 ever made.   Now stick a DW7000 bas pedal on her and that deep, dead kick; goodness does she make your heart skip a beat (pun intended).   Tie in some Piaste 20 hat, a Piaste dark/dry ride, and a Sabian Paragon (Neil Peart's signature...
I feel like i may be one of the few who actually likes Aliens Ant Farm's Smooth Criminal...   But then again, I suppose I enjoy the catchyness of pop with the hard edge of rock.   For example Silverstein's rendition of Apologize is far more appealing to me than One Republic's.
I would take the 840 myself. I've had my pair for a while now and can attest to its gr4eat build. I know I had the chance to audition the m50 at6 a fairly recent audio event. To me, the M50 just felt cheaply built. The Shure, despite the draw-back of the weight makes up for itself with an incredible track record of durability. Mine have been beat to heck and back and still sound amazing.   Now here's the thing, I hate the term "better" as it pertains to headphones,...
I'm all in! I love my Ms 300, I'd love a 500. Thanks for putting this on.
over the ear will sacrifice a lot in the ways of looks in most cases. Um, in that range though i'd go for the shure srh 840.  It's a personal favorite of mine. Decently balanced, a touch of mid emphasis, a nice sound stage. Theyre easy to drive. As well as isolate well. though they are a touch large....heres my review        
Id say the phiaton ms 300 just based on you need forgood looks. Goodness. They are like headphone supermodels. Bass wise they should be good for you. Theyre a touch on the bright side. Bass is incredily tactile. Perhaps a touch to much so for some. And il admit it can get a touch overshadowed at times. But overall a great headphone if you like a forward, broght, aggressive, but fairly balanced (not to be confused with neutral) signature.
Oh so what my answer wasn't good enough
