hey everyone im new to these forums and would just like to say hi and thanks for having me. now on to the meat and potatoes i have a pair of BEATS solo HD and i dont really use them anymore they get kinda uncomfortable after a while and i think the sound really aint that great anyways i dont use them much anymore i got them cause my friend recommended them anyways im gonna sell them and get something else my budget is 100$ i currently have a sound system in my car with subs and aftermarket speakers so im used to loud music and bass i listen to hip-hop like usher,bruno mars,eminem,tech n9ne,ice cube i also listen to rock like metallica,journey,foreigner,killswitch engage,avenged sevenfold. i use headphones for the gym and running and walking outside im not opposed to an  over the ear setup its just most are big and i dont wanna look dumb soo i would prefer on the ear but i am open to any suggestions by anyone. thanks for reading

Have you checked out the Buying Guide?  If not, see it here:

It's an excellent place to start.

The Philips Fidelio X1/28 Premium Over-Ear Headphones is an excellent can, although I don't know if it will satisfy a true basshead.  See:

Bass heavy? You could try the V-Moda M-100 or XS. Though the beats still 'out bass' these two in terms of sheer low end strength.

OP said budget is $100.

Oops sorry, my bad, missed that out.

Then +1 to the Sony X10.

Given that you're worried about size also, I'd recommend the x10's slightly smaller brother the MDR x05. Almost identical but just a bit smaller and the bass will rattle your skull. Overall sound isn't terrible either, especially for the type you listen to. Both the x10 and x05 are extremely comfortable to wear.

Why not give IEMs a try? There are a lot of basshead-friendly options as far as I know. Also, The Audiophile Bass Lounge is a better place to look for basshead-friendly cans. They've got a list of on-ear, over-ear, and IEMs for bassheads. 

 

Best of luck with your purchase!

Also, have a look at the Xiaomi Pistons. Super cheap, and super awesome at $25.
