So how much do you want to spend? There are better headphones out there for <100, but for the price the koss is also good.

For rock you can also get Grado SR60.

i would love to stay under 50 bucks. Looks dont matter to me at all .i just want decent sound for like 50 and below.but i understand ill be at the low end of the spectrum most my music is ripped at 128 wma. so i think amazeing headphones will be overkill

Then I think the Koss is alright. Thats if you want something new. If you have access to a second hand market (maybe you can look around here on head-fi), you can get something better for under 50.

But serioulsy, consider using atleast 256kbps MP3 or AAC for your music. 128 is noticeably low quality.

Sennheiser PX100-II ($50)
Grado SR60i ($79)

Creative Aurvana Live ($60) also a good choice.

Well i just ordered the koss porto pros i mean 30 bucks cant go wrong....I doubt my dap is good enough for a better set anyways. I kinda recall having a pair that radio shack made years ago and they sounded decent. . Some day ill get a better dap and better headphones. Used to have sony minidisc and some mdr v6 it was a decent combo i miss minidisc. Ps this forum rocks

The Creative has a bass driven sound. Not sure if it works well for rock/metal, but really good for rap/hip hop/dub etc.

 

From what I read on head-fi, it seems the grado 60i/80i is recommended for rock/metal, but not good for music with high bass.

The PortaPros are great at their price range for rock.
