ibuds: no bass
'better headphone:' omg it has bass! this must mean it's good, more must be a better thing!
really expensive headphone: omg it doesn't have more bass! this must mean it's bad
And yes, actually feeling bass resonating in your cavities is something people think that more bass from headphones can produce. About the most they get is the actual, flimsy frame of the headphone moving around on top of their skin because of too much bass pressure.
