There's no such thing as best headphone...sound is subjective so something you may like, I might not.

Some suggestions for ya:

 

Audio-Technica ATH-M50, PRO700MKII, A900

 

AKG K240MKII

 

Beyerdynamic DT 660, DT 770 32 Ohm, DT 770PRO 80 Ohm

 

Denon AH-D1100, D2000

 

Shure SRH840

 

You'll find strong deep bass with these selctions as well exceptional overall sound quality that will suite your music preferences just fine.  Welcome to Head-Fi by the way and sorry about your wallet!

Digital Pride I enjoy seeing your canned answers... very economic XD

 

I agree with the listed suggestions for the genres you mentioned.

What do u think about it?I heard of that is good.



mhm, I dont think the K/Q701 is very good for hip-hop/rap because of its weak bass

:D

If you like bass and detailed sound... ATH M50 or Shure SRH 750dj.

Both are fine, don't fret and choose whichever appeals to you.
