Price-range: $100-$300, around $180 would be great...but I would spend more if it's really worth it.
As the title says, I am looking for headphones. They will be driven by a laptop most likely, (I might get a desktop later on and get a Xonar card) they will be plugged into an amplifier (see second part) as well has being passed through one or 2 EQs...those being MaxxAudio 3 and or REW v5 + some equaliser. As for everything else besides the bass I have no specific requests except that the quality of the sound be good. As for the bass, I am a basshead...not just any basshead, but a "bass freak" so to speak. I like very deep, loud, punchy bass...that similar to what you'd get from subwoofers and that's what I'm looking for. Quantity of bass isn't entirely important, but the quality could not be more important. I'm looking for that skull rattling bass...and that ever so sweet frequency of bass that produces the vibrations that tickle the ear drum. I've heard the bass from the Bose Companion 5 speakers...and that's around the type of bass I'm looking for, talk about eargasm...even on low levels of volume.
So long as the headphones meet the bass that I want, I don't care too much about everything else. I have not been spoiled when it comes to sound quality, but I do expect some degree of it and would be ecstatic if I could get better sound quality than that I'm used to as heavy bass. Build quality does matter heaps, but I doubt anything $125+ will have sub-par build quality. Portability is not important at all...these will stay at home. Weight does matter, but as long as it isn't too heavy it's not a concern. Comfort is a concern, these will be worn for up to 6 hours, as long as it's got ample padding then it's fine.
I've found that ATH pro700MK2 and Ultrasone HFI-580 have good reviews, I heard the ATHs are like putting "two subwoofers to your ears", and I've heard the Ultrasones produce all the bass a basshead could ever want, but am unsure. I've also heard of many other mainstream brands, but I'm not on board with the CPOs, M50s, Crossfade LPs, etc.
As for the type of music I listen to, I listen to mostly pop and bassy music like dubstep and what not...I rarely listen to anything else.
Thanks in advanced for any help. If you need more info, just let me know.
