Good pair of base heavy headphones

    Any recommendations for a pair of cans out there? Need to be robust enough to be used outdoors and have a good base thump for mainly dance and clubbing music, with some rock thrown in.
    Price around £50 - £150.

    Not 990s as they are fully open backed and too much outside noise creeps in. I use them and love them... but not for outside. Also the DT990 Pro is available in 250, 600 and 800 ohm variations so be careful what you buy and mate it with as 800ohm is hard on (say) an iPhone.

    DT770Pro are closed back. (880s semi open backed) all in budget. 770 Pros in 250 ohm would be my suggestion for use outside but the 990s are airier and have a much better articulation of bass being open backed but outside noise is an issue with these. Great in the home though. SPL Phonitor + DT990 pros = I listen for hours with them on without fatigue. Real workhorse.
