I've looked at the top 6 threads when you search "Bass Headphones" and looked at all the recommended headphones. I'm posting this because I don't think that any of those posts were personalized towards me.
I'm looking for headphones with deep bass. Deep is more important than powerful but powerful is nice too. I'd like to keep it to Over Ear headphones.
I've had the Skullcandy Skullkrushers:
The bass on these were powerful but not deep at all, were too plasticy. The bass also sounded somewhat fake when you turned on the magnets.
Sony XB 500:
Amazing headphones, I'd say almost exactly what I wanted in headphones. Had really deep bass but it was pretty powerful too. I would get these again, but I want to know what else is out there. (Got these stolen )
I listen to:
Almost all techno music but mainly Dubstep.
Where I think other threads have not been personalized enough for me, is when they say they listen to dubstep, they also say they listen to rock, where mids and highs are pretty important. I take bass over all other frequencies, the bass drop is the most important part of a song for me.
Right now what I'm considering is
Sony XB 500 - Previously owned and liked
Sony XB 700 - Upgraded version of headphones I already like.
Sol Republic - Some new interesting headphones I saw a review of, know nothing else about them, only issue I have with them is that they are on ear and I would like to stick to over ear (http://solrepublic.com/)
Audio Technica pro700 mk2 - Seemed to be highly recommended in other threads and Audio Technica I know is known in the audio industry
I own a FiiO E5 Amplifier that can be used to power any headphones that would require it.
The Audio Technica pro700 mk2 are definitely on the top edge of my price range, so max about $160
I'm going to be basing all prices off amazon.com since they have a nice return policy and I know headphones can be very personalized.
