Both the Fischer SBA-01 and Grado GR8 should do nicely as well.  smile.gif

Or use any IEM and get a poor seal biggrin.gif

 

Brainwavz B2 is a VERY good performer for very low. Everyone said it already, but ER-4 or HF5. If you're confused about the two, http://www.head-fi.org/t/598267/review-etymotic-hf5-or-the-er-4

I think Etymotic ER series suit with what you are looking for. Other than that, base on my experience, you would try TDK BA200 and Westone UM1either smily_headphones1.gif

To the OP:

Please try to find out if you want bass-neutral or bass-roll off. They are two different things.

Audio Technica ATH-EM7, EM70, and EM700!

They look great, incredibly comfortable, are super clear, and the bass is light, tight, can be heard but not loud enough for you to feel it.

If you want to spend less money, why not try RE0?

You know what, I'd consider the Heir Audio 4.Ai... it's around $400, but can be cheaper, maybe... it's almost "chirping"...

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot to mention... get some of those equalizer apps for your phone (don't if they have it by default) and just slide down the first few columns of the equalizer... that's the bass, to be straight,...
