I've been listening to a lot of stuff by 'The Crystal Method' and Trent Reznor (mainly 'Ghosts' and his OSTs for 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' and 'The Social Network'), some dubstep, a lot of progressive/jazz metal/rock (read Aghora, Gordian Knot, Cynic, Tool, et cetera), and a good amount of Jazz/Fusion (i.e. Mahavishnu Orchestra, Shakti, L. Shankar, Paco de Lucia, Al di Meola, Coltrane, Davis, Chet Baker, Paul Desmond, Joe Pass etc.). They all sound great so far, as long as a good recording is available. I'm especially smitten by 'The Crystal Method' and ordinarily I never listen to Electronic music. The closed yet capable (i.e. good depth and width) soundstage really adds to their good recordings and well-distributed instrument/source placement. You should really give the KRKs a shot if you have the chance to audition a burnt-in pair (out of the box they're way too harsh and bright for you to fully enjoy any bass-oriented genre).
I must warn you however, bad recordings are absolutely intolerable. So if you aren't careful about the quality of your music files and/or the album has been mixed/mastered poorly, you just won't feel like listening to it. This has happened with me and Hendrix. And I absolutely friggin' love Hendrix. I would listen to him all day on my MX5021/HD202/Brainwavz M1 (yes, broke high school student here), but now it just doesn't feel right.
