I managed to be a dumb@$$ and lose my Zune 80 and AH-C551 in one go, yay me.
I've been thinking I should upgrade for a while, but fortunately, upgradeitis is vaccinated by pennilessness. But even such a state succumbs to the dire straits of no longer having a player nor IEMs (I surely won't go out the door with my Audio Technica ATH-AD700).
Anyhow, I loved the AH-C551 and also had the AH-C700 at one point, which I loved to their literal death. They had a good amount of bass and I'm a bit of a basshead.
What 'phones can you recommend with a similar sound signature to these within the $100-150 range?
I listen to more death metal, dubstep, hip hop, and indie than I do things like jazz or classical, so I'd prefer a more aggressive sound than a clinical, precise one, but would still like some sort of balance.
Btw I'm considering getting a Creative Zen X-Fi2.
