So far I'm looking at
Velodyne Vpulse - $90
Spider Realvoice with mic - $85
Hippo VB - (can't seem to find a price on these)
build quality on monster products are shoddy...
probably need something with more bass for the dubstep
i think the shures are midrange focused?
best bang for your buck i would say are the audio technica cks77- around $50
check them out
do you think the cks77's would be uncomfortable, because of that weird shape they have?
I have heard from my friend today that the Senn CX310 Adidas version is really to his liking in bass response. Read some reviews of them on Amazon afterwards, loads of positive reviews and comments. They fit your budget perfectly :) . Wish I had them before I purchased my own share of the ATH-CK10s.
they're not over the ear
the tip is the only part that is in contact with the ear so they comfortable, and it doesnt slip out or anything
the weird shape i think increases the air chambers, for the huge dynamic drivers

audio technica just released their successors but they are still pretty new- came out in april this year
Just did a lot of research on this very topic. Seems like the CKS77 have that punchy bass you like and for a cheaper price. I just picked up the XB90EX's and those are the reported bass kings without muddy, viewed mids/highs.
I highly recommend the Denon AH-C751's; you can probably get them cheap used. Great build quality and excellent punchy bass.
