I have around 20 pair of headphones and a dozen IEMs. If it’s bass the Fostex Ebony’s hit the lowest and smoothest. Then the Philips Fidelio x2hr. Legacy 3s with the dips in the right spot are nice. Shozy Form 1.1 have a lot of bass but it’s a bit sloppy....but boomy.

For me: 1) Campfire Cascade - Underappreciated and not talked enough about. Great low-end response while not losing clarity. Most of the time, don't need EQ to get stupid bass from these. With just a bit added in the sub-bass region, these are cheek/tooth rattlers while still maintaining most of their resolution. Just too much damn fun when the mood strikes. 2) Campfire Atlas - Yes, for an IEM, they hit so hard. Tons of sub-bass goodness. With EQ, it feels like my eyeballs are vibrating. It's intense. 3) TR-X00 Ebony's - Extends very well for certain tracks but lacks the oomph of the TH900 so my opinion of them are a bit skewed despite liking them more overall to the TH900. EQ on these are fun but muddies up everything else to not be feasible all the time. 4) Focal Elegia - Nice extension and clean, but lacks quantity unless EQ'd. Luckily, they respond well to EQ and can shake your cheeks nicely. 5) AudioQuest Nightowl - Very similar to the Elegia, good extension and clean lows, just lacks that added oomph without EQ. Can also turn your cheeks to jelly with little effort. Ranker lower as the Elegia have better technicalities overall by comparison. Super fun song for testing those lows I like to use: Three Ralphs - DJ Shadow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_Cbfmm-2oE

Do you think the cascades are better than the x00?

Fostex TH900 had bass quality and quantity, if TX00 anything likes it, i would pick that. Mrspeaker is not known for heavy bass, the aeon does seem to have a bit more than Ether line, but the refinement is not up to 100% Ether line (from what I read)

If it's just bass you're looking for JVC sz2000, its like having a woofer on your ears.

I only actually own 2 headphones, so this is easy.
  1. Audeze LCD-3
  2. Sennheiser HD 6XX
That being said, if you asked me about all headphones I have full impressions on, I think the best quality bass I heard had to be out of a system which had a Fostex TH-900. Note though that system was more "fun" than accurate (not necessarily a bad thing; I thoroughly enjoyed it)
When I get a moment I will throw out some comparisons... I won't be going through all 31 pairs however.
Sorry Ladies & Gents, been on the road a lot recently. Looking at the following for a comparison: HE500 Pro900 TH-X00 (MH) Audeze Sine Maybe the SoundMagic HP150 althought I don't pull that guy out much anymore. If anyone is intersted in Elex, DT990, T1 Gen1, HD650, sr325e or any IEM's let me know... don't feel like clogging up the thread with a list of all 31 pairs but own various Beyer, Sennheiser, Grado, Ultrasone, Hifiman, Sony amongst others.
