Alright now before you guys freak out, just take a second to cool your jets before you reply to my question. I have been looking for portable on ear headphones for a while to use when i'm out of the house and mostly at school. I have my m50s for at home but they are just too bulky and do not look that great as they are huge on my already big head. I want a headphone that REALLY pumps out the bass. I want to be able to feel the power of the bass as I am a bass head and I have in the past switched devices just to get an eq that pushes out a ton of bass. I love the bass on my m50s but I don't wanna have an amp in my pocket at school or wherever so i want a headphone that can deliver huge bass without it. I also am concerned with how i look so they have to be exceptionally good looking. The last thing is I am not worried about the cost as long as its 200 or under as this will be a christmas gift. With all of this in mind do you guys think that the solo hd's would be my best option or is there something out there that will fulfill these needs without being frowned upon by audiophiles everywhere? Thanks for understanding guys, I really do appreciate good audio quality but these just seem to fit my needs so well and I am not purchasing them myself, so they don't seem that evil.
EDIT: also, I really only listen to hip hop and dubstep (teenagers these days) with a little bit of rock like radiohead and avenged sevenfold but that is only about 5% of the time so if I had to switch to my IEMs or only listen to that at home, i wouldn't even be mad.
