So I can get these headphones at work for $100. How are they for electronic and hip hop? I prefer as much bass as I can get. I'm currently using the Denon D2K's and they sound great buy I don't think my Fiio E11 is giving them enough power to bring out their full capabilities, and I won't be getting another amp anytime soon.
These are good sounding, easy to drive headphones. The E11 will have no trouble with them. As for "as much bass as I can get" these probably are not the cans for you. I find the bass realistic and satisfying for the music I listen to (classical, jazz, classic rock, prog rock), but I don't think these will bring out what you are looking for. Most bassheads find these to be anemic. They are, for one thing open cans. Too bad, because $100 is a great price for new 558s (mine cost $105 refurbished).
