This is narrow-minded. You must understand that Grado aims for a completely different type of bass outside the standard conventions of other headphones. Rather than providing huge, bloated quantities of bass Grado aims for clean, accurate
This is what people continue to fail to understand about bass. Just because it rattles your head with sheer impact does not mean it is accurate, and surely does not make it superior. Of the headphones I have heard to date, the only non-Grado headphone that had truly phenomenal bass in both quantity and accuracy was the JVC DX1000. Otherwise, I prefer Grado's presentation of bass to every other brand I've listened to.
On topic, AKG K81DJ's are pretty sweet budget headphones in the $60-70 range
