For a little cheaper you could pick up the Sennheiser HD439 £80

How do you judge great bass?thumb.gif

A700s have powerful bass as if the equalizer was U-shaped while headphones like my current 595s are much more neutral but produce clearer sound on all frequencies. I can compare these two pairs especially since my roommate has owned the A700s for 3+ years and same with my HD595s. Coming off an of iPhone (without any amp) 595s almost completely lack bass when compared to the A700s. With an amp the 595's close the gap but only slightly.

Personally I haven't had a chance to try them out but seeing as they are more in the price range you are looking at while being closed and focused on bass I would give it a shot. However it isn't that much more for some A700s.

Not for gaming... The soundstage isn't very wide at all and they are not comfortable for long gaming sessions.

They do not have great bass in terms of quantity. The bass is well defined, but is VERY minimal. You do not get the A700s for bass.

So basically there are no headphones that got great bass and can handle gaming that aren't too pricy?

Honestly unless your comparing headphones to a sub woofer the A700s will be all you ever wanted. I listen to dubstep all the time on them and they give great sound without getting too muddy. If you think the A700s have little bass then you must be tone def or listened to a busted pair. Just google it and you will find most people agree the bass loudness is there.

If you want to get bass that slams and starts to over power other sounds I suggest the DT770s

Those are small and very unprofessional websites... Do you think an m50 has a large sound stage with lots of bass too? The A700 is so scarce of bass, it's ridiculous to even bring up it having bass as a positive. My 280s have more bass then them, and their a monitor headphone.

Like I said to the OP it was just a simple google search of what people who owned and reviewed the A700s. User reviews that I see on consumer sites are positive as well.

I never used the M50s so I cannot comment directly on those. But I have heard A700s extensively compared to HD595s, HD598s, and dt770s. Of those A700s had the 2nd best low end sound. (I know HD595s and 598s are very bass neutral) But unless the OP doubles the budget I wouldn't recommend having to pay that much for a comparatively marginal improvement.

Anyway back to the point of helping the OP I highly recommend A700s for gaming/music headphones at around $100.
