In that price range I've only heard the PortaPros or modded Sennheiser HD429's. The PortaPros have more midbass than subbass and are really head thumping, while modded HD 429 really bring out the bass in the subbass region, but you can tune them through the mod for more bass, but it might be a little too much (there's a modding my HD428 page around head-fi which also applies to the HD429).

The HD429's have been replaced by the Sennheiser HD 4.30i, but they have the same drivers so the methods to mod them should be the same.

Out of all those I recommend the Creative Aurvana Live! , they were the rage years back for bass headphones on the cheap and I doubt that has changed, never heard them though.

Philips SHL 3175
Pros:
Very high sens, bass retains considerable pressure down to 24hz. Not the fastest bass but strong. Cheap. Decent upper treble.

Cons:
Mostly on-ear while declared over-ear by manufacturer. Screamy and resonant in upper midrange and rather fatiguing. Bad spacial imaging. Vocals a bit blurry and electroguitars sound like background noise instead of detail. Very mixed impressions but may be worth a try.

Superlux HD681 Evo could potentially work. Bass is better than 668B and top end lacks sibilance of thte 668B.

Meze 99 Neo maybe? I don't really consider the bass muddy, but a little boomy opposed to tight. 23 ohms I believe
