I going buy a set of headphones and I have three models in my mind. First one is Shure SRH550DJ, second one is Klipsch Image One and last one is Bose on-ear headphones. I need a strong bass and punch feeling as well as clear sound quality. Thanks first to those who will give me some advices.

Heya,
 
Budget?
What will they be used for?
Closed or Open?
Amplifier?
Any limitations (like where you have to buy from, etc)?
 
Very best,

Most of the time I will just connect to my iPad or iPhone to listen music or watch the movies. No limitations so far, what I concern most is good bass and sound quality plus average durability. Thanks for helping.

First of all, don't even consider getting the Bose on-ear's. They are very overpriced for the mediocre sound quality they provide (muddy sound, boomy bass). The Image One is very comfortable and sounds surprisingly good, although that's about what I would expect from Klipsch.

I will recommend the Klipsch Image ONE too and it's sound warm, clean with deep punchy bass. It's sound good with all genres music and it's built well.

For Shure model I not so familiar with, I saw this model from magazine in last minute before I plan to choose between Bose and Klipsch. So it seems this Shure model is out due to poor performance. Thanks again for the advices from all of you.
