Need help choosing a pair of inexpensive portable headphones (Any kind), mostly for rock, techno, dubstep, anime, gaming.

Thread Starter 

Budget: $150-200 

 

Something better then the Skullcandy Skullcrusher (http://www.skullcandy.com/shop/skullcrushers-black-pinstripe) and the astro A40

 

Prefer headphones that don't require an amp to sound good.

 

I have looked through a couple headphones and not really sure if they are great for my purpose. 

 

These headphones are...

 

Audio Technica M50

 

Sennheiser 558

 

ES-FC300

The Onkyo ES-FC300 are definitely very nice for the price (I just got a pair). Have you seen this review? http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/delightful-onkyo-es-fc300-and-es-hf300

I haven't directly compared the Onkyos with the M50s yet (I loaned them to someone at work), but I do like them better.

What sources are the headphones being plugged into?

Does it matter if the headphones are open or closed?
