Looking for around $200 or less total. Going to be home listening, most likely out of my PC. Electronic being mostly electro, glitch hop and dubstep. Suggestions? Thanks guys
Best unamped/cheap amp can for lots of electronic and some indie rock?
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
A900x is a great headphone, and can occasionally be found in the $100-$120 range. Bass is not overblown, but is satisfying. Vocals are really nice, comfort is excellent for most.
You might want a sealed headphone for PC use. Open headphones are a bad idea with a noisy PC
I am definitely not a basshead by any means, more of a treble head if anything. This coming from owning the V Moda Crossfade LPs.
I have looked into the DT990, and frankly they seem to be very harsh and need a decent amp to tame them at all.
I found a $175 pair of Denon AH-D600s, so I might just jump on that. Reviews on those look very good- tight bass and sparkly treble.

Straight out of your PC? Electronic music with deep bass?
at $175 grab the Ah-D600. it punches way above that price point and you'll be hard pressed to get such a comfy can for that price range that meets your criteria.
I got mine specifically for its excellent bass to use for electronic music. It turned out to be a good performer for acoustic music too, watching movies (comes with an additional long high-quality cord), playing games. Its quite immersive.
Not sure about burn in, but I really warmed up to these headphones after using them for a weekend. Bass seemed to tighten up.
Hope you get them!
