Good headphones for jungle/drum & bass?

    After reading lots of reviews, i'm going to try the dt 880 (600) but i'm also open to any advice.
    p.s. My plan is to buy a xonar STX.

    Beyer DT880s and Bass are things that should not belong in the same sentence, well, for me atleast. Although their mids/highs are fantastic for the money, the bass is definitely lacking for those who enjoy drum and bass (not sure what jungle is), however I must concede that I am a bit of a bass head. The Ultrasone Pro 550/650 or HFI series may be a better option as they tend to have more pumping bass and sharper highs.

    The bass might be a-bit too heavy for some bass heavy D&B (like jungle), i search something with a bit less bass in general, like k702 / hd 600 /dt 880...

    The Sony XB500 impressed me with its bass. So too the Audio Technica ATH-WS55.

    If you don't want a bass heavy headphone then the DT880s would be fine, if not, the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro has adjustable bass settings so if you find at some point you want more/less bass, you'll be covered.
