For punchy midbass I doubt there's much more than Sony XB800/900 and V-Moda LP2. Even the LP2 had slightly greater midbass punch than XB500 which are no slouch there either, far from it. :p At least I've never experienced especially drums hitting with such "hammer-like" experience like on LP2. The Sony XB800's pads hurt the bass impact a little bit, would be better if it was circumaural, then it would provide a more "skin-tickling" impact but the quantity is definitely maybe more than LP2 but LP2 you maybe feel it better in comparison.
