Try the E2C's maybe? If you want to go cheaper (but also alot crappier) and get canal phones try the Sony EX71's. Alot of members here (including me) have tried it and regard it as pretty bass heavy.

The V6 is definitely what you want, they are closed, pretty comfy, easily portable, within your budget, and BASS monsters. Their mids and highs aren't the greatest, but are pretty darn good for your budget, and the bass will blow you off your butt the first time you hear it (assuming you've never heard any cans with real good bass before).

I love bass too but I don't like the bass to dominate the music. Personally I prefer the HD280 because it has very good bass that goes very low without taking over the sound. If you really want a bass heavy headphone though, go with the V6 (or the 7506 which is the same headphone but has a pro sticker instead on one that says digital and has a gold plug).

BTW welcome to head-fi!

I've also been lookin into the hd 280 pro earcup, but i've heard that its not worth its price(89.99) where v6 is 69.99. I dont like base to dominate massibley, but i love it to be boomin :p. right now its bwetween hd280 and v6. I'm not sure which one would be better for the price. Any comments on these?

FWIW the HD280 cuts off outside sounds much better than the V6, but is is also a bit heavier on your head (the V6 is very light), but does not rest on the ears at all, whereas the V6 does. Also the V6 is much more practical for portable use. I think both cans are well worth their price.

for under 90 dollars, the v6 probably offers the most bass.

i personally find that it's too much bass, but if that's what you dig...pick one up.

the shures will not have the bass you are looking for, i think you will be deeply disappointed.

the bass on the sr80s are good too, but you may find that it's too bright with the stock pads.

Since I don't believe anyone has said it, please don't confuse the V600's with the V6's. I know you brought up the V6's first, but wanted to state the warning, just in case.
