I'm not a true audiophile but I can appreciate a nice sound ( I own both Etymotic ER6i's and Audio Technica ATHM40FS) and I'm not too much into heavy bass, yet I can't say the same thing for my teenager cousin. For Christmas,my 16 yr. cousin wants Dr. Dre Beats (for $180?!?) but I've heard what a mess they are.... she really doesn't know any better and wants them because all her friends have them and they say they sound "good". Sure.... I want to help my Aunt out to buy her a nice pair of cans for Christmas but for $100 or less. So what does the jury say would be the best pair for a teen who would probably like more bass cause she listens to the top 40 songs. Thanks everyone for your imput!
