Well, you are seeking advice from the wrong crowd. Audiophiles, or serious headphone enthusiasts, generally don't buy sol republics, skullcandies, or beats because there are better values to be had elsewhere. So most head-fi members don't have experience with those headphones that would help you much.

The only headphone in that list that is generally considered to have decent sound are the skullcandy mix masters, and there is a good deal on them from BestBuy for $113: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/skullcandy-mix-master-dj-headphones/4919325

The JVC SZ2000 is the current bass king. Try getting a pair of those and then switching the earpads to something more comfortable like some Alpha pads or HM5 pads (if those fit).

sadly true

 

From the price range that you seem to be looking at..

I can personally recommend the ATH m50/m50x

ATH pro700/500mk2's

 

Best of Luck!

I second the vote on M50x...I personally feel like they are a little bass heavy for my style of music, but overall they sound very good for the price range. They will sound excellent to anyone coming from crappy earbuds.

What you need to decide is if you are buying headphones to be fashionable or if you are buying headphones to have a better musical experience.

The M50x is a better musical experience, those others you list are a fashion accessory.

The post above me is right on point!

Once you get away from the just good looking/popular brands (However i dont think the m50's are bad looking by any means) And hear a good quality can from a company focused on sound QUALITY and not celebrity endorsements .. Beats are a very distant after thought... trust me i was in the same mindset at one point (a year ago i would have killed for a pair of beats studios) but now im sure that there are MUCH better options out there in terms of value.

FYI: Innerfidelity gives the Mix Master a good review: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/skullcandy-mix-master
And that was at $299, not $119.

Thanks smily_headphones1.gif

But with that Mix Master, I'm just going by Tyll's review and then what others have said as well who have tried it. Joker like it as well: http://www.head-fi.org/t/603885/review-skullcandy-mix-master-duality. If Tyll and Joker think it's pretty good, then can't be a bad deal for $119, especially if one HAS to have a Sol Republic, Beats, or Skullcady headphone to be stylish smily_headphones1.gif

If I remember Jude liked it as well, or at least it surpassed his expectations. Personally I find it a fun headphone which has some decent features. The bass isn't bass head level, but it is certainly not flat by any means. If memory serves, Skullcandy has a strong warranty. I'm surprised how often I've used the mute button. I bought it on a whim, and don't regret it.
