Beyerdynamic Dt770 pro 80s or Custom One Problem would give you the bass you are probably looking for.

Man... This is SO subjective! I'm a musician and producer and I'm kind of a "snob" when it comes to how things sound. I like reference type headphones. If you don't know that that is, they are headphones that accurately produce the actual sound and frequencies of a recording. They also are high quality enough to produce the really low lows and high highs. I.e., if you want more bass, you can up the bass in your sound device and they will ACCURATELY produce the frequencies. I have a pair of HD 280 pro's and I love them. For the price, they are the best reference headphones I've every used. For an example, I played Amnesia. Whenever you open a door in that game it creaks, and the sound quality of the game is very high, because these reference headphones produce the frequencies. There are these super low frequencies in the creak, and they are so well produced by the 280 pro's that you can almost FEEL the creak. On the other hand, one of my sons has a cheaper gaming headset. The bass frequencies are boosted. They sound over pronounced and the really low lows are not present. They sound flabby and TOO bassy. But, some like this sound. I hate it. I like bass, don't get me wrong, but I like tight, punchy, super low bass that you can feel in your chest. Not the kind of bass that overshadows everything else and sounds like a prolonged fart. My finding is a lot of pre-30 year olds like this sound.
If I had that kind of $$ to spend on headphones, I'd get the next best Sennheiser reference headphones.

This made me lol!

I agree with what you said, though. Some headphones are definitely better at recreating accurate sound than others.
