Music doesn't have low bass, except for synth.

I don't think you've actually felt a real sub, you keep on using the word "hear" But that's not suprising if you've only heard headphone bass.
less then 20hz sounds/feels like passing streetlights on a freeway @ 70 mph.

woosh-woosh-woosh-woosh

it has nothing to do with music, all your statements about your incredible headphones that can get down to 2 hz are ridiculous.

Are you delusional? Where have I said my phones or indeed sub goes down to 2hz.

And I'm just saying movies do have low bass, 15-20hz is now quite common on certain movies.

I'm currently looking for some bass cans for under $200.

It would be exclusively for gabber, drum 'n bass and action games.

Cheapest 15" Subwoofer you can buy at Best Buy. Go to a yard sale, find a crummy chair. Break the legs off of them. Buy tons of Epoxy. Slather it on top of the Subwoofer, glue that chair on. Sit on it. Place crappiest headphones you can find on your head, and press play.

For gabber he should get some high end Grados. 770pro's bass is too slow and boomy for gabber. I guess your AD900 would be good for gabber too.

Sure does, HC is still big in some parts of the world. I think they just call it Hardcore these days.

Har har

Though if I didn't live in an apartment, I'd probably try the sub thing

When an artist calls for a subwoofer hit, I want to feel it.

Like many musicians, the bass guitar for me is a percussion instrument, not just a musical instrument...and without it in sufficient supply, I feel the music has less rhythm, less power, less feel. Just my opinion.

My taste? Clapton, No Doubt, Plant, Pretenderrs, Kasey Chambers, etc.

I have the Beyerdynamic 880's...wrong 'phone for bass. Great otherwise.

The 770's are really good...the bass hits just right, but feel they're otherwise lacking in definition.

So, I'm looking at either the Grado 325i's, or the Sennheiser 650's.

I know they're different phones...and I've read a zillion threads here describing their sound...Grado's 'in-your-face' sound vs. the Sennheiser's 'laid-back'
sound...

But which has the best bottom end?

Thanks
Get the beyerdynamics dt 770 pro-80 ohm

And then repeatedly others explain you are wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong. Blargh.
First, you are wrong. I have never once claimed that DT770s are the ultimate phones, or anything similar. Far from it, since I have said many times that I like the DT150s better. What I have said (correctly) is that they are excellent phones with natural bass. This does not imply that I think they should be anyone's favorites, merely that those who describe them with infantile insults such as "fart cannon" are outright liars.
I do read other's impressions, but I cannot trust them if the people writing them make claims that directly contradict my own experience. My knowledge is based on listening, not reading. Since I know what I hear, I have never been wrong (any discussion of phones I have not heard is speculation, and I always say so.)
I have never once posted anything that could be considered "spam", so stop your slander.

Compression cuts out bass. So if you like bass make sure to use a lossless format.
