Hey all, 
 
I'd like to make this thread specifically for discussion of:
  1. Bass oriented headphones (Over-ear/on-ear/in-ear)
  2. Bass capable portable DAPs
  3. Any DAC/amps that have bass worth mentioning
  4. Gear recommendations for new or existing users
  5. Images of bass headphones and/or bass-oriented audiophile gear. 
 
 
This thread is NOT invite only - anyone is allowed to join in!
 
Here are some price lists. It's a work in progress. Just a few notes:
 
Prices:
ALL PRICES ARE IN MSRP. We cannot monitor the market in every region for pricing.
MSRP is listed, but not all of them were available, and sometimes they varied depending on the source. These are not cost prices. The price at your local store will definitely vary, so use this only as a guide.
If you see question marks, or the ~ symbol, please chime in with an MSRP, and it will be fixed. Thanks!
 
Voting:
Voting is an important part of this list - it keeps it realistic, and helps trim the fat. If you want to vote at any time, simply browse the lists below, look for the "VOTE NOW!" label, and let me know if you think it should be on the BASSHEAD lists or not.
 
Also, if you see a product you would like to vote on - comment, and let us know!
 
Formatting:
Someone help, PM me! I can't make them center-align. Might looks nicer.
 
IEMs and amps:
Are below the Full-size can list!

DNA On-Ear                      <<<<<Removed!
Noted that the Monster on ear DNA are already listed, but they also have a lesser known big brother over ear variant which as expected by virtue of larger ear cups leading to a better seal, have a larger more airy sound, which is noticeably different to the on ear DNA, but still well within the bass can remit

  The Basseus Supremous H-300 would be the first on the list I'd imagine...

 
I just finished my time with the H-300, I'm glad they are making hybrids that pack a real punch. The H-200 left a lot to be desired in the bass domain (IMHO), so I'm glad they polished that up. I love hybrids in general - even if they are trendy at the moment, they are still a bassheads dream (in theory).
 
  Hey,
 
are we allowed to have a lovely Nespresso in this lounge?

 
Sure mate - also, cocktails are available at the bar.

Thanks but I'm sober nowadays. I'd love a coffee right now as I'm sitting on the subway on my way to work, listening to my Klipsch x10.

For being balanced armature they are rather bassy and hit a sweet spot for me. Their size just makes them even better.

Dancing exactly like dude in above advert is a side effect of owning this headphone - happens to me every time I use em, can get a bit annoying after a while though :D

Thinksound on1... maybe


Thinksound On1 monitor are by far the best on-ear headphone I've heard or owned to date.

Are they of audiophile standard bass?

Yes, I'd say they fit the criteria for this thread perfectly.

The sound that comes out of these cans is so much bigger and better than their restrained design and small form factor suggest - a true wolf in sheep clothing.

And these cans upscale very well, so they happily run directly from your smart phone/tablet with a fantastic sound, but also get even better with whatever quality amplifier you pair them with.

It's a very lush warm sound to my ears that come from these cans with very crisp clarity. Very well balanced IMO. I absolutely love them.

Some absolutely amazing photos mate. 
 
And I couldn't agree more about the On1 - delightful bass. I didn't have a huge amount of time with it, but it seemed a little more pronounced in the sub-bass region..
 
Correct me if I'm wrong.
