that reminds me, you should look into the under-reported akg k181dj. it's sturdier than the k81 and has adjustable bass.

Dave, as you know....I had many cans, some you own now. The Equation RP-22x has more bass than Philips or A900LTD. I only listen to RP-22x on some music for the fun factor to better appreciate my Senn HD650/HD580 I will have it with me for the DC/MD/VA meet in July...make sure you show up.

are iems on your list? the ultimate ears super.fi 5 pro eb (extended bass) might satisfy your cravings. there are some bassy offerings from v-moda too.

Definitely. These would be my choice. Or the 600s (are they even still available?). Also a Sennheiser HD580 has a whole lot more bass than the Grados listed, though an amp would be necessary.

I have a pair of those. Total crap sound.

DT 770's definitely waaaay harder hitting bass, deeper, and clearer sound overall.

I like my k81DJ's better than the sony's but the beyers come out on top.

So I'm not about to give the 700s a ringing endorsement, as it's been several years since I have heard/owned them, but there are many reasons why a lot of hip hop djs are using these cans. I think "total crap sound" is a bit over the top. However you probably cannot go wrong with the Beyers, if their fanbase is any suggestion. I'm looking at checking out a pair myself.

Well, they're not terrible but after getting the beyers there's no way I can enjoy them now haha

+ theyre the most uncomfortable headphones I've ever had. At least with the k81's I was able to make them really comfortable by bending them for A couple minutes
