Most people who are looking for a new pair of headphones want something relatively balanced. After all, a good balance of lows, mids, and highs makes for a much better listening experience. Some, however, are much more concerned with the bass of a pair of headphones. After all, great-sounding bass can really help a song sound deeper and tighter.
If that’s you, then thankfully there are quite a few options out there. There are plenty of bass-heavy headphones to choose from, all of which will deliver powerful-sounding music that’s sure to rattle your skull. Here are some of the best bass-focused headphones on offer.
Sennheiser HD 1 Wireless Over-Ear
The Sennheiser HD 1 Wireless headphones are, in our view, some of the best Bluetooth headphones out there. Not only are they relatively stylish and comfortable, but they boast excellent bass-response too.
The Sennheiser HD 1 Wireless headphones offer a deep, powerful bass that’s sure to please the bass fans out there. It’s not all bass though — the mid range and high-end also sounds very good here. High-end is often overlooked in a pair of headphones — but in the Sennheiser HD 1 Wireless headphones, it’s clear, detailed, and sounds great.
Skullcandy Crusher Wireless
Looking to turn the bass up to 11? The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones may be the way to go. Sure, they could be a little more comfortable, and the high-end isn’t as detailed as some other headphones, but the fact is that if it’s bass you want, these headphones have you covered.
In fact, you can actually adjust just how much bass you want to hear, thanks to a slider on the side. That slider lets you turn the bass up (or down) to skull-shattering levels that the vast majority of people would never want to listen to music at. With the slider up all the way, the headphones literally shake.
V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless

The headphones are easy to control too, thanks to the buttons and switch on the side.
Looking to get a little more bass in a portable and relatively stylish package? These headphones from Sony might be the best choice for you. Not only do the headphones feature a stylish and sleek black design, but they’re also built to offer a little extra bass.
