I'm looking for Headphones (open or closed is not that important) with good, decently deep and punchy (at least Sennheiser HD25-1 level) FAST bass. Just ones that are actually somewhat comfortable to wear with glasses. For home use, portability is a bonus but not important.
I can drive them from a dedicated soundcard or stereo amp.
Headphones i have already tried:
-HD25-1: Great, no soundstage and comfort being the main problems.
-HD 558: Yeah, i don't know what i was even thinking.
-DT770pro 250ohm: Great, except so slow in the lower frequencies all music above 170 bpm sounds "broken". (And yes i have heard the tracks on many big subwoofer/PA systems before, it is not supposed to sound like that)
-FA-003: Even with equing the bass has little to no impact, way too boring for fast electronic music.
I was that close to ordering ATH-M50s, but it seems Audio Technica silently updated them and the new version has much weaker bass.
Someone help me before i Kramer-Mod these KSC-75s and give up on expensive headphones. (Because it does seem like a waste to listen to 24-bit FLAC with 15 dollar headphones :P)
Edit: Can anyone say something about the Senn HD 380/280 Pros?
It seems these might be similar in sound to the HD25's while being more comfortable...
