No, but I use them with my loudspeakers!
Headphones should be good enough not to need one.

I would expect you would need some well designed headphones for them to be able to take it. The well designed headphones would already have a good enough range.

I bass boosted some cheap large closed headphones and all I got was rattling as the diaphragms were overworked.

If you are not getting enough bass from your sealed cans, your money might be better spent getting new cans or investigating alternative earpads that give a better seal.
