Need some <$100 portable headphones for Eminem (rap) and Nu Metal, would like: tight but strong...

Hi,

I have some JVC HA-M750s for $50, they were decent, although somewhat lacking in general, and they're broken now.

I currently have some Sony MDR 570LPs for $45. The are ok, but the sound is sloppy and weak, far too laid back. They lack any strong bass and the high notes (like violins ect.) aren't sharp at all, it all kind of flumps into one. Also the whole sound is kind of distant. 

Please can I have some recommendations for headphones that are portable with a sharp sound. I actually quite like the high-note clarity of the Apple Earpods (sorry...) I'd like strong bass that isn't too cushiony and with an overall tight sound.

Thanks for your help. Sorry I don't know all the terminology, I am a noob. Must be less than $100.

They look pretty hard to get in the United Kingdom, but thanks I'll check them out.


The UK has most popular/decent headphones.

They are only for sale in Japan, but sold thru eBay and Amazon.

Thanks, how do these compare to the Creative Aurvana Live headphones?

Also I used to the Phonak Audeo PFE-012 which I liked; how does the soundstage of them compare?

These hit harder than Yamaha Pro 500 ($399.00) and V Moda ($299.00)  They need an amp and burn in time but for sheer un distorted thump?

Here you go.
