If you can go another hundred bucks, you can get a pair of Sennheiser IE80s from Amazon.De (no import tax, ships to the US in about a week). They are, by far, the BEST bass you can get in an IEM with one of the largest soundstages of any pair of cans. They're worth the upgrade if you use IEMs a lot.
EDIT: Just stay away from Beats by Dre. Seriously. They're branded crap made by Monster. They have bass because they overload the lows so much it distorts everything else and the drivers arent quality so overtime the bass will get muddled and sound like crap. The X10s or a pair of Shures will sound exponentially better and are made better by people who know how to make and design headphones. You can get a beats plugin or flash a beats mod to get everything that would make any headphone sound just as crappy as a pair of $150 dres.
x10 has a quality bass, not the "basshead" quantity he is looking for
Klipsch is definitely a great choice, but they are more in an audiophile category rather than "fun" category, and also their quality went down (just like UE and others).
Regarding Beats, yes, stay away from them. I wouldn't blame Monster as much since they were under a contract to manufacture these headphones rather than design them. If anybody to blame it's Dr Dre
Once their contract expired in 2012 and Beats went on to manufacture their own stuff, Monster is actually pumping some quality products. I just posted review of their DNA Pro over-ear headphones (in my sig link of reviews), and the sound was top notch. I'm waiting now to receive Monster iSport Victory to check out how their new in-ears sound.
