    I don't know much about closed cans.....I need a closed can that is easy to amp and good for rock....must be under $100
     
    Need this for a gift by June 15th.
     
    Thanks for any input

    What sources will the headphones be plugged into?
     
    Check out the Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000) headphones.

    Sony v6 sounds pretty good for rock music.

    The $200 Phiaton MS400 are closed type 'phones and excellent for rock and cool looking and very comfortable and selling on line now for $129

    Audio technica m50 can be had for under or around $100

    Mikros 90 because it has a Grado-like sound.

    All good choices IMO; the Mikros 90 may be a little light on the bass for rock.
     
    Also, I've heard so many good things about the Senal SHM-1000, as an "improved" Sony V6/7506,
    that I bought a pair from B&H.  They're supposed to arrive today (Tuesday), so I may
    be able to put some thoughts down here by the close of the day.

    I still think the Creative Aurvana Live are pretty good rock headphones for $70.

    The Mikros 90 will have plenty of bass.
    Modded, they will have limitless reserves of bass.
    [zazex: Do you own a pair?]

    Don't own them; heard them under decent conditions.
     
    Modded: many good headphones really shine
    when modified
