hey there guys, im looking for a headphone that sounds good with trance, electro, dubstep, etc and is also fairly comfortable for long listening sessions... I don't have the extra money for the amp because im in school. any suggestions would be great, thx

You might want to take a look at the Fostex T50RPs (along with the accompanying thread here on Head-Fi). I can't say from personal experience yet--mine are still one their way from Utah--but with some relatively cheap mods they're supposed to be pretty fantastic.
