I have never tried any high-end can, but i believe HD650s are a strong contender for both quality and quantity.

The ED-9 are great for bass boost, but today I prefer more quality over quantity. I vote for the K702 or the HD-800 bass.

I like the bass on my PS-1s. It did take some tube rolling to get it right though. I have a Melos amp and have tried Bugle Boys, Seimens E88CC's and am currently using Mullard E88CCs. I have some Telefunkens on order but the Mullards are a little bass light and are suiting my system very well. The bass is very deep, controlled with plenty of impact

newest batch of Sony R10 and Denon D5000 or 7000 unmodded are bass monsters, also Darth Beyers are also very good, newest version of HD650 is pretty bass light tho

I have the HD650 and its bass is pretty good, but is missing that very solid punchy impact that my Audio-Technica ATH-M50 is capable of reproducing (and it's bass extension over the HD600 is not actually very significant, and neither is its bass detail). In fact, the M50 is the only headphone from my collection that can reproduce that kind of punchy and solid bass that sounds very similar to what a very expensive pair of studio reference monitors can do. I was actually amazed by how well the M50 was able to get close to what my Klein+Hummel O 300D's are doing in the bass region.

Stax SR-007(BL)
Perhaps not ear shaking bass, but plenty of quantity and not to forget quality and control.

L3000, oh yeh of course !
But hey how about the Edition8?

Ultrasone PRO900 or JVC HP DX1000.

ED 8 is nice so far but I will wait for break in for final judgement. Currently I like it better then Pro 900s bass.

I was very disappointed from the HD650 bass when i got them (new version) ,
it was anemic IMO,almost without bass at all. but now i am using EQ and i can say that after boosting it a little, the bass is very deep and with great quality and texture.(I am not sure,but i think i like it more than D5000 bass regarding quality) ..but as others said, they got almost no punch at all.

I had some crazy punch on my HD 650/canamp combo... I didnĀ“t think you could get such punch from open headphones. I suspect the 650 mid bass hump correlated exactly to the Canamp mid basshump lol.

But anemic no not on any amp I have tried quite the opposite. Slee Solo was a lot better for it since it negotiated that hump quite well

The HD650's bass is not nearly as good as the M50 in both quality and quantity. It failed the bass detail test:
