Which of the RHA SA950i and the AKG K451 headphones is best for powerful bass, but with clear highs and mids? The K451 seem like they will produce good bass, but lack high-end sound and clarity, is this true? Do the SA950i give enough bass for me, and do they offer more clarity than the K451? For reference - forgetting everything except the bass response - the AKG K430 offer deep *enough* bass response, so a pair with that much (but ideally a bit more) bass, but clarity across mids and highs (to give as much of that "instruments in the room" feel as possible from a pair of slightly bassy, closed-back on-ear headphones under £50) is the sound I'm hoping to get.

You can vote on the poll but comments as well are best.
