Im willing to spend up to $100 maybe a bit more on a really good earphone.
Earphones that are bassy. I've been using the apple headphones and I would like a headphone that is more bassy then apple earphone.
Oh and its gotta be durable!!. I want to be able to use these while walking/running without the cable snapping or something falling apart.

Which headphones should i look at?
And where are some good places I can buy these online?

Image X5

at that link, you will find the Klipsch image x5. These are supposed to be great headphones and, if you are located in the US, you can type "half off" in the coupon code box and have these phones for $125 until november 30th.

That graph sure doesn't match my subjective experience. To my ears, the iBuds have a lot more bass than the Head-Direct RE2. The RE2 supposedly has more bass than the ER6i.

To my ears they sound horrible and if they do have bass its nothing notable among the screeches and pops of the other instruments.....

And yes, out of vmodas and denons, the C751 is best for sure

Yes, by about 2-4 dB.
Those Nuforce IEM's look tasty.....
Those are worth considering as well.
