Opinion or not that's not what punchy means when referring to audio.

What you're referring to is probably bass slam or impact.

Not exactly... I just find tight sounding boosted mid bass to sound punchy.

I, personally, am not a basshead, but since I listen to A LOT of electronic, punchy kicks, wubzy wubz, and a nice sub-bass to lower mid is great. (I didn't know how to word this, lol.)

You haven't experienced real bass.

I personally am a basshead/audiophile, which by my definition is one who doesn't mind the sound signature of any pair of headphones, as long as they are good at what they are made for. I listen to most every type of music. Fleetwood mac, Glenn Miller, the eagles, hatsune miku, moxix, creedence Clearwater revival, and more.

This statement is a little ambiguous, as there are very few indications given from any headphone manufacturer as to what purpose (genre) each headphone is made for.

This is of course in the context of your eclectic taste in music and not broad headphone classifications: 'studio', 'home', 'on-the-go' etc

 

Also surely a basshead WOULD mind the sound signature of a headphone, leaning strongly in preference of a warm/bass-heavy sound signature.

Confused I am.

 

And Sony MDR-J10 are pretty damn awful sounding (just to keep the thread-gods happy ;)).

I would imagine bassheads often go for V-shaped sound signatures which are more 'fun'.

In a basshead can, I'd personally prefer impactful bass over heavy bass. Heavy bass is often muddy and convolutes the other parts of the sound spectrum. Impactful bass is precise and controlled, but at the same time prominently stands out from the other sounds.

I got those at an airport for $5 once, I found them to actually be pretty nice for the price.  They broke and now I am sad.

For some reason I love flat flat flat. So Senns are pretty boring for someone that likes excitement.

I listen to most every genre on the face of the earth. That's why I enjoy multiple types of headphones, and can formulate opinions on many cans without a sound signature bias, unless they are truly awful.

I like excitement on occasion, but I prefer neutral and linear headphones as too much excitement is fatiguing to my ears. It's not the lack of excitement that makes them boring for me, it's how they present sound.

Go look up Beats and read reviews can also be said.

Depends on your definition of Basshead. I find HFI-580's to be bass monsters, and even think my HE-500s are really bass heavy.

These definitely deserve a place on one of the worst headphones I have heard. Just loose ugly muddy bass, with some mids, and treble is a myth.
