    Hi Bass_Head,

    Thanks for the breif but amusing review of the Beats Pro:)

    The Ultrasone Pro 900 have great bottom end but they are not super bassy. I kind of get the impression that you are really looking for quality in the bottom end. One little problem with the Pro 900 is that they really need an amp to get the best from them, is that something you would consider?

    If you want them to be portable these are well worth a look -

    Pioneer SE-MJ591 Foldable Closed Back Audiophile Headphones
    £249.95

    I was pretty wowed by these, they are really clean and have a fantastic bass heavy feel, very easily powered.

    We do not sell them but have a look at these -

    crossfade LP2 over-ear headphones

    They are alleged to have face melting bass whilst sounding pretty good through the mids and highs. I have not heard a pair of the LP2 yet, but someone on here might own some.

    Anybody want to review these?:)

    The problem with wanting super bassy headphones is that as the price goes up it is oftenly the quality of the mids and detail across the frequency range which increases. Basically a lot of the expensive stuff is more subtle.

    You can always EQ in more bass, if the headphones are good they should take it and stay stable without overloading or distorting. you have to manage this with the volume too though, sometimes people forget that when they add more bass they are also adding volume (with a graphic EQ anyway). Headphones which have a bassy feel should take well to more bass being EQ'd in. Have you seen these?

    House Of Marley Destiny TTR Closed Back Headphones
    £249.95

    They positively rattle your head! They are actually active so need no amp and should work great with a Blackberry.

    Another option is these

    Shure SRH840 Professional Closed-Back Headphones (SRH 840)
    £149.95

    The SRH940 (next model up) are nice cans but not as bass heavy as these.

    If you want to go quite high end then these are pretty bassy!

    Denon AH-D5000 Closed-Back Reference Class HiFi Headphones
    £449.96

    Which one to recommend

    Here's a thought on which one of the three headphones different people might recommend. If I were suggesting just one out of 3 bassy headphones for example, I would suggest the least bassy of those so as to get the best mids and high frequency reproduction. But a dedicated basshead might want the *most* bassy of the three, so the question is a bit tricky.

    Recommend...

    I think the Denon and Shure are both very good. Whether the Denon is so much better for the extra money I can't say. I think you would like the Shure OK, but the Denon is smoother and higher in overall fidelity. That's based on my research rather than actual listening. The Denon has also been the subject of custom earpads which make for upgrade possibilities. So since I already know the Shure I feel confident about it, and if I felt like I could spend the extra, I'd get the Denon.

    House of Marley

    House of Marley is much lower in fidelity (sound quality) than almost all of the well known brands of headphones made by headphone specialists. Sometimes with fashion headphones or celebrity headphones a manufacturer will take an existing headphone like the AKG K701 and make a fashion version that is the same, except for the look and finish. But when the fashion headphone is not made from an existing model by a well known manufacturer, you can't usually expect a headphone that competes for best sound quality. Try a Google search for "House of Marley review" and see what information is there.

    Dt-770

    Most users think the DT-770 has bass that's stronger and better than most other quality headphones. They will work fine with iPods as long as you get the 80 ohm version, and as long as you use volume that's average to "average loud". If you use them in a very noisy place with an iPod, it might not play loudly enough to overcome all of the noise. But that means it also won't damage your ears. The best sound of course will be with a good headphone amp, or a good sound card on a computer. If you have questions about amps and so on, try the amp topics and see what you can find there, or pose a question.

    Have you looked at the noise-canceling headphones on the main site here?

    Headphones

    I can't advise on any in-ears, and although I could make a suggestion for noise-canceling, it wouldn't be the best bet since I've only owned one, and it broke three times in less than a year. Someone else may have an idea.

    But if I were looking for the very best combination of bass, quality, and loudness from a regular headphone, the Beyerdynamic DT-770 (lowest impedance) would be my first choice.
