Just got my Vmoda LP-2s. Pound is not the word, they have a TON of bass, I love them. For rap and dubstep they are pure sex. The highs are clear but not obnoxious, the mids are clear but not so far forward that it overpowers the bass/treble, and the bass.....
Compared to in ear skullcandy Titans, which are a in ear model people here whine frequently "Have too much bass", they have far.... far more and it extends WAY lower than the titans, it actually extends really really far down, like nice loudspeaker sub does. Also, I am sitting here listening loud enough that my ears are vibrating as well as my neck ticklin in my office, and no one around me is complainging about the noise, the leakage is controlled nicely.
Bass EQd full up, with an additional 12db bass boost on my rockbox ipod classic and no distortion at the "0db" setting, so basically all the way up....
For comparison, I A/B tested against Beats Studios here. The Studios have more bass without EQing, however, with both headphones eqd and turned up just before I hear distortion the LP-2s at least keep up if not surpas with the Studios and the Vmodas sound more clear, are smaller, more comfortable, 100-150 bucks less, durable, sexy as fux, and have a better warrantly plus the 50% immortal warranty.
LP-2s, love em, ignore all the audiophiles that are looking for a flat sound if you want bass, LP-2s rock!
All that said, when I am listening to other music, such as Epica or Within Temptation, they are crystal clear and at least to me sound fantastic with a soundstage large enough to actually pin point instruments in the live recordings. The bass can easily dial back and not be so "big", leaving everything flat and bringing the mids and highs slightly forward actually makes classical music sound pretty nice.
