Hi All,

Firstly, I've found this site to be a great source of information but I'm still a little stuck. Also apologies for posting a new thread but my post in the recommendation thread kinda got lost in the ether.

Music genres: Mostly Indie, punk, rock but I also listen to generic pop and hiphop. Additonally, playing drums in a pipeband, I listen to bagpipe music and drumming only tracks too.
Portable: Yes but size isn't really an issue for me.
Price range: The headphones I'm looking at are around the £150 ($250) mark but could go higher.
Amped: If need be then yes.
Closed/Open: Closed.
Headphone preference: I normally prefer to have a fair bit of bass no matter what I listen too.
Used with: Samsung Galaxy S3, iPad 3 both using spotify premium.

The phones I'm interested in are the Audio-Technica ATH-M50S (straight cable), beyerdynamic custom one pro and the AKG K550. The amp I'd probably purchase would be the FiiO E11 as a DAC isn't important for me.

If anyone could offer an opinion I'd appreciate it or if anyone has an alternative(s) then that'd be great.
