Sadly I don't really know what that means.  If you're just after pure bass quantity then just EQ your bass up 20db or something, or get an XB500.

That's not true. Grados can sound very good with electronic music as well. For the type of dubstep you like though, they might not be the ideal choice. I think Grados can actually sound very good with more slow paced and ambient electronic music but lack the bass depth for dubstep that goes down to the really low frequencies. Even then I would not call them bad, just that there are other headphones better suited for the genre. I'll throw my vote in for Ultrasone. Or you might also want to consider the Sony XB series. The Denon D2000, 5000, 7000 series are also good choices but probably out of your budget.

 

Nice taste in dubstep by the way, I prefer the older stuff a lot more as well. I'm not sure what happened to Skream, I loved his early stuff but I listened to the Magneticman album the other day and I realized it might be time for me to move on from the genre.

Throwing a song at me isn't telling me what you want the headphone to sound like though.

They sound perfect to me.

I listen to mainly dnb and dubstep. My grados handle more uptempo basslines with ease.

A poor choice of words on my part. I don't mean to imply that Grados can't keep up in terms of tempo. I do enjoy dubstep on my Grados and they certainly are very capable in that respect. It's more that for dubstep in particular, I would recommend other headphones with more sub-bass presence. If a friend asked me to let them try out dubstep on one of the headphones in my own collection, I would use the Ultrasone Pro900s of Denon D5000s before the Grado SR325i and HF2. For dubstep, I tend to prefer the more closed-in intimate sound of closed headphones, while I feel the open airiness of Grados fit very well with more chilled out soundscapey tracks. I have to admit that this is very much a matter of personal taste though.

The hf2s were a little bass heavy. I just got another set of older goldies and they sound real good with the cavalli. Evol intent is wrecking my ears atm.
