I got tdk ba200, and now my HE400 feel really tame and boring... I want full-size with bass as strong as ba200 has, or even stronger and warmer, if possible.
My amp/dac is Schiit Magni and Modi.
 
 
I was recommended LCD-2 for my needs, what do you think?

I've never heard the tdk ba200, but the LCD2 has bass that's very similar to HE-400.  It most likely won't do it for you.  I'd look for a closed full sized headphone.
 
Or you could just EQ the bass up on the HE-400.

Closed headphones have thicker bass? Thats what im after -- REALLY thick and warm bass.
Its not very important, but I prefer open if possible. Ill be wearing them pretty much all day, and i dont want to be completely isolated in my own world.. hehe. If I cant get what i want with open though, closed are fine; the sound is whats most important after all.

Of course there is the Sony xb-500/1000. Why not just EQ, you won't get more competent bass out of many headphones, compared to the HE-400? Else, if you wanna go all in, get closed headphones

Denon D2000/D5000 great sub bass rumble, but still high end sound all around.  I had the LCD-2 before, and I've only owned 2 orthos counting the LCD-2, but I find the bass very linear.  If you're looking for that rumble D2000 has what you're looking for.

Pro 900 Also is known for its amount of bass. dt700 pros amped with bass boost would rumble your head.
 
Just my two cents. What type of music are you listening to, if i may ask?

 
Scores/soundtracks, many dub/dnb derivatives, and all kinds of eletronic music really. Also im a sucker for female vocals. 
And ill mix in whatever is the latest catchy track ive found from any genre, coz like anyone ill listen to any track as long as i find it catchy and appealing. (Hardly any rock/metal or hipsterhop though)
 
edit:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs__1a1gbPo   <- probably my favourite track

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8nYBqPRNKw <- really shait without good bass. BA200 handles it -pretty- well. Bass could be even stronger though.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3XzBhZqWMo <-- epic on HE-400 when played loudly enough -- though a good example of where i would really love some more punch; specifically on the bass/drum beat in the background, i really wish it was thicker. Not necessarily louder, just more thick and round sounding. That delicious bass underneath the saw after the drop too (2:55), i want it to shred my ears more.

Well then i stand by the pro 900, as the sound sig was made for that type of music. i cnt truly tell you how it does as i dont own it, but i have the hfi 580 which is basically a step down, and the punch is just wonderfull. I also have the dt770 pros and they are simply just too slow for this music.
