Hey, guys, I'm trying to decide between the Sony MDR 7506 or the Sony MDR XB500. I need the best...

  Okay, so, I'm new to all this.  I do not even own a pair of headphones, just the Yurbuds earphones.  I listen to mostly rap, so, I love bass.  I also listen to a rock band named Skillet, and even some mellow stuff like Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky.  I really want a headphone that produces all the sounds well, but I really do enjoy bass.  The thing is I'm also wondering if I'm really going to love having a lot bass in a headphone.  I think I rather have all that in a car.  Anyways, it needs to be around $70 to $90. And also, whatever I get will be all I have for a few years.  So far, from all my research and a friend's advice it all points to the 7506s, but I hear a lot about the BX500's bass.  I'd love some help, even another suggestion.  

  Here's some questions I really want answered:  Does the 7506 perform well with rap?  Are the other sounds on the BX500 covered up to much with all the bass?  Will the BX500 handle my other music well?  How good is the 7506's bass?  Thanks guys!!

I own the Sony MDR-V6, the 7506 is a somewhat close copy of the V6.

Anyway I prefer using my JVC HA-S500 headphones ($60), over my MDR-V6.
