Okay so i narrowed it down to the philips sbc hp460. But the problem is there are two presentations for the same headphone, in both boxes it says SBC HP460. But the difference is that in one says Superb bass and in the other box it says Hi-Fi sound.I want the one that has more bass (the one that says superb bass) but that one is a little bit more expensive. In both boxes say theyre the same model but why is the one that has more bass more expensive? Maybe a way to get costumers to pay more?
 
 
Here are the different headphones

Why do you want absolutely the philips brand ? This  brand is  rarely recommended   here. This is more easy to get recommendations from sennheiser, shure, grados, akg , even sony ...
If you want absolutely a recommendation for this brand, you might be more lucky by using the search function of this forum.

I want the philips brand because thats one of the best brands here in bolivia. Besides.... my question was will there be any difference between the two presentations of the same model of the headphone? The one that says super bass and the other that says hi fi sound? Or are they the same just with a different package.

If you look at the manufacturer manual for the SBC HP460, they say : "Super Bass. Hi-fi sound anywhere" So it's not as if you got the choice between "super bass" & "Hi fi".

Even if the choices are limited on your country, what makes you believe Philipps is the best ?
Good luck.

Well, i borrowed it from my friend and theyre pretty awesome for Death Metal music. Here (Bolivia) it costs about 30$. What other models from these brands would be good then? Sony, Philips? Cant spend more than 30 dollars.

Hummm.. Ok maybe they are the best at this price range, especially since you tried and liked them.
 
You might look to earphone instead, found this thread:

I have a pair and they are worth $30 easily. That being said, I like the $26 JVC S700 better but I don't know if those are available to you in Bolivia.

I dont want earphones because i read somewhere that they dont have as much bass capacity as full size headphones (i know there are many bad quality full size headphones too).

Maybe not earbuds, but you can get plenty of bass from IEMs.  I  get much more bass from my senn IE7 (IEM) , than my  full size hd595.

Extrabigmehdi is right. The Meelec M9 has more bass than the Philips HP460.
