People don't see why something as easy as boosting bass via EQ or cheap amp like the Fiio E5 with bass boost on will get them all they bass they could ever want from headphones like the M50, XB700, DT770 Pro, ES7, and other phones capable of powerful bass.
An M50 + Fiio E5's bass boost = THUNDER

I don't know about those but I DO know how the M50 sounds. The M50 is capable of some truly powerful bass when paired up with some bass boosting. I honestly don't see how anyone can want MORE than what the M50 can put out with the E5. If you want even MORE bass, the XB700 is fine alternative, easily having more bass before and after the E5.
This is Head-Fi, and people frown on bass boosting, but for TRUE bassheads, the best way to get that lovely bass is a simple bass boost, no question. You can spend hundreds of dollars on a headphone, or buy a decently cheap and capable headphone like the XB700 or M50 with an E5. Hell, my ATH-ES7 + E5/E7 has murderous amounts of bass, and they cost me $55 refurbed on Newegg.

The Shure SRH750DJ is no slouch in the bass department, either.
