Hi Head-Fi, I'm looking for some headphones with enough sub-bass to power some "original" style dubstep (Skream, Mala, Loefah etc.) and I need something with enough sub-bass to hit those 20-30Hz notes. I've read through all of the recommendation guides, but I'm not sure any of them are geared towards someone looking for as much low-end as I am. I'm talking songs like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-cqZVKOEUg (Loefah - Goat Stare) which are essentially 20-30Hz sine waves for half of the song. As far as the rest of the spectrum goes, highs are more important than mids (for good snares) and the bass should ideally extend super deep, but not be bloated sounding. I currently own AD-700's and I enjoy them for almost any other genre, but I essentially can't hear any tone under 30Hz unless I hold my hands over the cups to make them more like a closed design (didn't buy them with this genre in mind haha). I also have MEElectronics M6's and SP51's, I find the M6's bass slightly too bloated and not quite deep enough to give some reference.
I'm more or less torn between the Monoprice 8323, Sony XDR-600 (500's are discontinued :( ), Incipio F38, Sony MDR-V55, and Pioneer Pioneer SE-D10MT-K (which I fear suck horribly, but Amazon reviews seem positive for whatever that is worth), Sony MDR-V6, Koss PRO DJ100, the list goes on.... I'm not looking for the perfect headphone, just the best sub-bass I can get at under $100!
Style: On ear/Over ear as long as they are portable (eg. no AD-700's)
Music: Deep, heavy, minimal dubstep (plus maybe some metal or blues rock)
Source: Either an Aune T1 or my phone (HTC 8S)
Other requirements: DJ style is nice (eg. rotating style so you can only have 1 ear on), since I occasionally DJ.
Thanks for the suggestions and help guys!
