We can then vote NO or ABSTAIN. This way, we can definitively remove cans that are certainly not bassy, whilst keeping cans on a "Probable" list. What do you think?

Good idea. 

 

I'm pretty sure that we can automatically allow some headphones to stay on the list, like the sony xb series, and vmoda headphones (minus the m80). What we need to focus on are the other headphones on the list that don't get much exposure in the club.

For capri, I would recommend the q40 with the zo2 and an amp. I have tried the lp,and lp2, both I consider inferior to the q40. The lp2 may have more rumble, and impact (the q40 comes close to them in impact though), but the rest of the sound isn't as good as the q40s. If you want massive bass, like more than the lp2, I would say try the pro700mk2 (although everything else besides the bass is better on the lp2). Another choice for most bass would be (surprisingly) the es10. Those things put out bass like the pro700mk2 but with stunning sound quality overall.

1 more thing, I would have to say please skip the hp800, the sound overall isn't too great, but the main flaw is they distort waaaaay too early. On the plus side, I love the box they come in lol.

Would ES10 be an upgrade to Q40? :) I've heard many ppl praise it for its bass quantity vs overall quality. It's just a shame it's on-ear... why can't the pads be a liiittle bigger :o

yeah, was looking at Q40 and HP800, but noticed Craigster's (and others) issues with distortion at high volumes. otherwise, they sound pretty great, which is a bit disappointing! whether I can deal with listening at lower volumes (probably better for my ears!), i'm not sure...i think Q40 might be the safer option in that sense.

So I'm enjoying the UE 6000 very much... but honestly... I wish Logitech Would release a 50mm driver variant. These 40mm drivers aren't too hot with Deep Sub bass, they have the BOOM but they lack the DIG. The XB 700 really DUG into the side of my head, as did the HE 400... still need to try a XB 1000 some day... unless ofc my D2k blows my mind :3 

 

listening to some rock on these, and I'm impressed! How ever their sound signiture is really kinda wonky, I suppose it's u shaped but i've got two upper mids and each sound well...

 

Listening to a very long Precious Fathers Song, and the Guitar quivers... with the Active Noise Cancellation off it's fine, but turn that ACN on and the guitar quivers... and some of the details are... hit n miss with this instrumental Rock song! 

 

But the clarity is still pretty good, the bass guitar has a nice body but is again a little one note ish... these really are bass Head cans xD but I will say they are very universal bass head headphones! Not better than my HE 400 but "friendlier" for sure.

Yeah. Those cans definitely don't need any introduction. They pretty much define "basshead".

 

Anyway, any other votes for the first round of cans? Does anybody think that some of the other Audio-Technica cans are worthy of the basshead tag? What about the big Audeze headphones?

I still don't know why you are so fixated on the 40mm vs 50mm+ debacle! LOL
Most of the bassiest headphones I've tried have 40mm drivers:

 

M-Audio Q40s

Perfect Sound Dido d901

Monster N-Pulse

etc.

 

:-p

Definitely also Denon D7000. I own both D7000, Pro 900 and signature pro but D7000 are my favourite for warm bassy sound.

Imo I would say yes they are th upgrade to the q40. Only problem for me personally was the treble. It has the typical hot treble of AT headphones, the the fact that the cups are metal don't help at all. Besides the q40 these are the only headphones I wanted to keep. If the treble could had been tuned down abit, I would have no reason to audition anything else under $1k.

I read that the esw11 pads on the es10 made them over ears for someone. You might consider that.

Don't mind if I do....

 

and yes, damn these are some bass head IEM's. Best $45 I've spent so far

Hmm so I've been testing the Ultimate Ears UE6000s today.

 

With the active NC turned on, these have quite a bit of bass. I'm comparing them to a pair of V-Moda M100's (with XL pads), Sony XB500's, and JVC S500's.

 

The track I'm using is the album version of "Dear Boy" by Avicii (on True). At about the 3:30 mark there's a huge bass drop, not hard but it goes down pretty far. The V-Moda's, out of that list, are probably the least bassy. They can't chase it as far down. I'm actually kind of disappointed in the bass quantity/quality compared to these other ones.  The UE6000s with power on at least match the famed XB500's. And they don't sound as dark as the XB500's. In passive mode they do ok, but of course the XB500 comes out on top. They still sound much darker than the UE6000's though.

 

I definitely prefer the UE6000 over the XB500 in active in bass quality/quantity and overall SQ, not sure about passive yet.

 

Wow yeah, these in active mode are pretty awesome.  Just as much if not more bass than the XB500's.
