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.post #4 of 610/3/12 at 12:14pmpost #5 of 610/3/12 at 5:14pmpost #6 of 610/3/12 at 5:22pm
These are new headphones but sound great for EDM. Thread here. http://www.head-fi.org/t/621063/the-new-jvc-ha-s500-40mm-carbon-nanotubes#post_8581957
