Can you guys help me help my friend?

    My friend loves technology and has a pretty decent setup in his basement for movies. He bought his dad some of the higher quality beats headphones and is convinced they're the best. He listens to a variety of music but his favorite bands are Blink 182 and Angels and Airwaves but also really likes hip hop. He would be playing the headphones from his computer/ipod unless newer headphones will convince him to upgrade his source or buying an amp. Price range would be less than the beats headphones. Any suggestions?

    For around $200 you could get a pair of Denon D2000's or Ultrasone HFI-780's (both have a lot of bass). I'd probably go for the D2000's. The sound is beautiful and they have incredible bass.

    Or the Grado SR225i, not for everyone, but one of the best at 200 dollars. They are very versatile.

    X2 on the 225i. If someone is new to great headphones Grados are a 'Wow' headphone. Everyone that's heard any of mine for the first time always have that reaction.

    Does he WANT other headphones? Some people actually like bad sound.

    What's the bass on an unamped 225i going to be like though?

    I don't think rap/hip-hop was a very big consideration (thank God) when Grado engineered my RS1i's, even when amped. I haven't heard the 225i though.

    yeah I was thinking of telling him to get some Grado headphones but did not consider the D2000. Thanks!
