My Sony XB-500 are freaking bass cannons! Highly recommended for bassheads. 

 

Im on the hunt for some Fostex TH-900s right now. Should be pretty epic.

Exactly my thoughts. xD XB500 to TH900, a bit downgrade in terms of bass impact but quality upgrade is like OVER NINETHOUSAND.

Lol. The xb500 are my traveling HPs when I'm longing for bass. The TH-900 will be my desktop cans. Had to replace my Senn HD800 because not enough mid-bass impact for me, but on the other hand sub-bass was great on the hd800. I'm just picky I guess.

You'll love the quality bass of the TH900. Good step up.

Hello y'all, looking for a recommendation. I currently have a pair of D5000 and while I appreciate their bass extension capabilities, they just don't have enough slam/impact for my taste. I mainly listen to metal, but some electronic as well. So I'm on the look out for something with fast, slamming bass. Probably something mid-bass oriented, quality sub bass extension is appreciated but not necessary.

 

Having mids would be great as well, but I can live with some recession if that's the price of having kick drums rape my face.

 

Trebles I'm not sure about, I've been looking at Ultrasone headphones which are often characterized as shrill and metallic. I also have a pair of SR225i and love their forward high end, how comparable is the top end of a, for example, Pro 900 to that? Would they be more fatiguing?

 

Doesn't have to be portable, they will be amped with an O2. Must be over-ear. Price < $400-ish

 

I'm currently considering the aforementioned Pro 900 and also the M100, but all suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

If it's more slam you are after, why not try EQing using a parametric EQ first? The D5K's would probably handle it quite well!

^that's very logical advice right there!

Are they Lawton modded or stock?  Doing the Lawton mods, EQing as suggested below, maybe a pad change (Alpha or Lawton angle pads) will kick the D5000 up a notch or ten.  That headphone can handle plenty of power.    Also, what are you driving it with?  The 02?  I'm not familiar with that but a good amp with bass attenuation capabilities will help.

You would be surprised how much the Alpha pads affected the bass on my D2000. It was a great change, and a drastic one as well.

I have considered and tried this, but they're just not fast enough for my tastes. They're unmodded and I don't have much interest in modding them either so I'm on the lookout for something different entirely. A more "fun", "v-shaped" signature I guess.

So I guess I am part of the club now! :D
I used to have  Sens HD212Pro but hated the lose fitting , so decided to research and while at BestBuy saw the Sony MDR-X10 for $99...so decided to give it a shot not thinking I was going to like them. Well, they intrigued me! I ended up getting the JVX RX700 and the MDR-X10 in like new condition from ebay ($62 shipped).

With a FiiO E6 and better yet, with the E11, the MDR-X10 really grew on me right away. My phone kind of has weak output but with the amp and EQ I was able to get some VERY nice sounds from the X10. 
What I like is the sound is warm yet I dont feel I am missing details. I prefer warm over too bright speakers. And of course...the bass...DEEP and strong and it is able to handle songs that lack bass and take them to another level while sounding natural not just forced and over EQed to achieve it.
I have a hard time listening to other headphones now to be honest...they just seem to lack that full meaty sound if that makes sense. :)
The RX700 are seeing almost no use buy I am running going to put some hours on them as I did with the X10 to see what kind of sound I get from them..or if I can tell any difference at all.

Anyways, without EQ , from my phone, I wouldnt use the X10...just sound muddy in that setup but with the E10 and EQ, I am loving them. Oh and the fit is tight and sealed, so no more need to push the cups against my ears as with my sens! lol

I know the X10 dont get much love around here but that seems to happen to any "main stream" or celebrity sponsored product..they are already dismissed as crappy and lame as someone said the X10 were on another post I made.

Oh well :)

For the price I paid or $99 I think they are outstanding. At $300, well that is another story lol

Yeah, I have the XB-910's and they're supposed to be the same headphones as the X10's. I like them a lot, and the bass is pretty epic. Also, I know what you mean by not being able to listen to other headphones in the same light.

 

That being said, the UE6000's are very good bass headphones and better than the XB's in terms of overall sound quality. I'm really torn between the D2000 vs UE6000; they both have their trade-offs and strengths, and I have a hard time prioritizing any of them. The D2000 are more "open", but also "slow", or something -- they don't really fit fast paced music all that well imo. I also have the Denon D400*, C300 and C400 on the way as well as the Sony XB90ex's. It's going to be a fun time trying to sort all of them out in an understandable manner. I will however keep you guys updated on my impressions.

 

* I know some people on head-fi are putting out very negative words on these, but I'm fairly skeptical that those words are exactly "unbiased" -- the mob mentality around these forums is quite out of hand at times with all kinds of exaggerations and yeah, well, you know that silly story... As a result I've stopped listening to most head-fiers about headphones, but that's another story for another thread.
