Group 1  "Cannons"

 

Cannons are headphones that produce an excessive to enormous amount of impact that can be felt from the ears to the cups and beyond. They vibrate the skull, they vibrate/tickle the cheeks and cause physical sensations. This physical sensation can and does interfere with the accurate delivery of what are widely referred to as good response slopes. The "mids" as they are the adjoining range are most affected by the over boosted low frequency. The "V" shaved EQ slope is applied to create an illusion of balance. The mids are almost unrecoverable if the bass is cannon like. Thus it fits in this group.

Group 2  "(Hi-Fi) low end boys"

 

High fidelity—or hi-fi or hifi—reproduction is a term used by home stereo listeners and home audio enthusiasts (audiophiles) to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound[1] to distinguish it from the poorer quality sound produced by inexpensive audio equipment, or the inferior quality of sound reproduction characteristic of recordings made until the late 1940s. Ideally,high fidelity equipment has minimal amounts of noise and distortion and an accurate frequency response. Wikipedia

 

 

Headphones in this category are typically of high price and high manufacturing quality and tuning. Some manufacturers "target" consumers looking for superior low frequency response. That is a tight less resonating sub frequency response that does not interfere with the transition from low to mid frequencies. They can have great impact but by design and tuning should not impede on the mid frequency spectrum. Prices start at around $500 U.S. and well  beyond.

Group 3  "Bassy Headphones"

 

Easily the largest group of the 3. Often auto tuned to respond well to low frequency. out of the box  Oft mentioned headphones such as the M-Audio Q40 Ultrasone Hfi 580 and ATH-PRO700MK2 fit in this group. ATH M50 are a well loved often recommended set of cans that are described as "cannons" ..they are not. This will be without a doubt the longest most debated list.
