I want the most bass heavy cans I can find...BUT I want tight, accurate bass...NOT boomy or muddy. I would also like clear highs and warm mids. Any recommendations? I've heard the Sony XB series, and I'm not a fan of the sound so don't recommend those please. Thanks.
Most bass heavy cans possible?
Tbh, i dont really know.. i think i never read anything about them needing a "special strong" amp. I think, they might work well.
As for the Laptop, an external DAC/Amp will ALWAYS be worth it for such expensive headphones. At least something like Fiio E10 i would get for them. Laptops tend to have abit... very low output power, and not sooo good soundchips.

To each-his-own but I owned the DT770/80ohm for a while. One of the worst headphones I've ever heard. The bass sounded very boomy and one-notey to me.
To the OP...Closed cans are certainly what you should be focusing on. The best closed cans I've ever spent time with are the Dennon AH-D7000 (sadly no longer in production). The bass on those was very tactile and powerful but still accurate. They were the closest thing I've heard in headphones to a good floor-standing speaker from the perspective of FR (closed always fall short on soundstage).
I've had no experience with them but from all I've read the aforementioned Ultrasones would be on my short list of cans to try to listen to before pulling the trigger.
