They are only $99 and obviously not intended to be an accurate neutral audiophile pair of headphones, but they literally shake your skull with rumbling bass. hahaha! that has to be interesting to try out.

 

best is a subjective/relative term, so who knows? there might be people looking for such a feature hahah


I've tried them at Best Buy just because of what you say - the potential is there for a real fun experience.  Unfortunately the Best Buy I tried had no way to plug them into my own iPod/Arrow 3G combo and the crap they had playing was not only awful music, it was distorted at very low volumes.  

 

You'd think they would make sure the things worked if they want to sell something................

 

Now the Bose QC15 station worked flawlessly and with my music feeding them, the sound was very good as well as the noise cancelling worked extremely well.

Their bass performance is pretty much equivalent, with the TH900 having a a very slight (likely inaudible) edge according to the measurement sheets. Most of the TH900's extra refinement is in the upper registers, where the TH600 tends to lack control and cleanliness.

The Beyerdynamic COP's are a great choice for bass, plus they include good sound.

To be honest the X1 isn't exactly a candidate for the "best" bass in a headphone in my opinion. It just manages to be slammy while still being open, which is uncommon, but (obviously) not impossible.

 

I'd say my DR-Z7 has my "favorite" bass; not excessively emphasized, extremely clean and free of bloom, and razor-flat from 200Hz and below. It's extension is downright incredible, and they have the most ridiculous impact I've ever heard. Seriously, if you want bass slam, these things are end-all be-all, bar none. They are by no means bassy however, in fact they're ruthlessly bright and analytical with most material, so bassheads should look elsewhere.

Yep! That's what I mean. It's rare to find bass slam in an open backed headphone! But here Thayer are! Can't wait for the X2. Maybe they can smooth out the highs abit. They sound edgy to me at times but maybe it's my low bitrate files...lol!

Low bitrate will smooth out any edginess by muddling up the treble. So, in short, no, that's not what's causing it.

Low bitrate and bad compression can also cause excessive sibilance in the treble.

Sibilance yes, etching no.

Ugh. Has anyone listened to the JVC xx line of headphones? The most advanced bass technologies ever in one headphone. Look up the review on this website for the JVC Ha-MR77X. Makes HTC One phone speakers sound like ear buds in loudness. And the bass is the clearest and most profound out of all of the headphones I've seen mentioned, without drowning out mids and highs. And they have an extremely accurate soundstage.

Somehow I doubt anything JVC has ever made can surpass anything else listed here, even the high end Victor ones...

Properly modded Martin Logan Mikros 90.  And yes, folks, these are portables.
