I will be buying a pair of headphones for my friend's birthday.I would like some help picking a pair for them.While I do have headphones that are like the ones I'm looking at(darth beyers,dennon 5k),but I thought it would be better to ask people with these models.The headphones I was looking at were the dt770 pro 80,dennon 2000,fischer fa 003,akg 550.Im open to anything but it has to be:
 
-closed
-under $300
-Good with rap/hip hop and electric(all genre)
-work with the fiio e11 or jds labs c421 and LOD(ipod is the source)
 
Thanks

Have you considered ultrasone? HFI-580 or the PRO 750.

Denon AH-D2000 is at a great price right now. I prefer it to other bass heavy cans like the DT770s. I'd easily pick them over an Ultrasone model.

I have but from what I understand there a bit bass light,I forgot to mention that my friend is a bit of a basshead.I'm also thinking about the sony XB 1000.

 
You clearly are looking for a much enhanced/exaggerated bass producing headphone, if you find the Ultrasone Pro 750 and especially the HiFi 580 to be bass lite.

I don't have experience with any of the other headphones on the list other than DT770...and ....in a sense my Q701's. But the DT770's are closest to what your friend will probably enjoy. The 80 ohm model is what I tried and others say it is the bassiest so..I guess it is the bassiest. It's ~$190 so get an FiiO E11 with it and send your friend on his way. The E11's bass boost should fit it very well. I have the E17 and another user I talked to got the combo and it worked well.
 
That's a suggestion, I'm not saying right now that that is descisive when I said "get".
