I am looking for a headphones that are bassy and yes i did visit the bass head club already and yes I have already read tons of forums on headfi, visited inner fidelity, read a gazillion reviews on many many numerous websites, but I really need an answer and please be helpful thanks!

I have a couple (a lot actually) of headphones in mind. I am not sure which to get. I want bass, tons and tons of bass but I also wish to have clarity. I don't mind overly accentuated bass but I also seek clarity and a clamping force enough or me to run with the headphones on my head. Yes I would like my headphones to be good looking but this is not a very important aspect. My budget is 400 and below (USD) cos I assume this an American forum right? I am from Southeast Asia and the prices are different here so I don't want to confuse you guys.

These are my few headphones in mind;
-Beats Pro ( Wait! B4 all of you guys start scolding me for being an idiot, I know very clearly the price of this headphones are a little on the high side but I really like the bass on these cans)

-Beats Studios (I hav not tried them yet but heard they are bassier than the pros. And yes I know everybody here hate them.)

-Beyer COP (Not available in my country yet)
-Beyer DT770 (Apparently discontinued but if its gd i will find a way to get it)
-Beyer DT990 (Bass is only sufficient and it's semi open.)

-Denon D400 ( I had a awkward experience with them but I am gonna giv them another shot)
-Denon D2000 (It's discontinued but is it dat gd?)
-Denon D1100 (Have not tried them but heard they are gd)

-Vmoda M100 (Not available in my country yet)
-Vmoda LP and LP2 (Have not heard them yet)
-Vmoda M80 (Have yet heard them but read that they are bass shy, is this true?)

-ATH M50 (Are they Bassy? Have yet to try them out)
-ATH PRO700mk2 (I heard the 70 Ann ver have specially designed drivers, is there a diff btw the normal ones?)

-Sony XB Series (I can only find the 200/400/600/1000, Are they gd?)

-Pioneer HDJ 2000 (Heard they are gd but not as gd as others eg. Mixmasters)

-AKG K167/267 TIESTO (Do they hav the bass?)

-Skullcandy Aviators (Heard they don't isolate well but have pretty gd bass)
-Skullcandy Mixmasters (They aren't exactly very comfortable becos of the shallow cup)

-Sennheiser Amperior (Most of u are gonna recommend this like how u guys are gonna say the m50s are the best but I would like a fair comparison to the others)
-Sennheiser Momentum (Are the Bassy enuf?)

-Phillips Fidelio L1 (Not available yet in my country but Tyll at innerfidelity say they are good but not a bass head can, are the Bassy enuf)

-Aiaiai TMA-1 (Have yet to try them out)

-AKG K550/551 (Have yet to try them out)

-Logic3 P200 (Bass is pretty good but have yet to compare it with others)
-Logic3 T250 an T350 (Have yet to try them)

I am gonna head down to my local store to do some tryouts and comparison but I want Ur opinions. I am going to use the Beats Pro as the standard for the amount and the quality of bass. Please point out to me those headphones I mentioned that are not up to the Pros standard (in terms of bass) and feel free to suggest other headphones with good bass too!

I mainly listen to Pop, house, but don't bother abt the music I want gd bass.

FYI if like headphone X has much better quality bass but fall short in terms of quantity when compared to the Pros, please tell me.

Thanks for the help! It's much appreciated.

Every headphone I know has less bass than the Beats Pro. The Beats Pro has a +20dB boost to bass frequencies-that's enormous.
