Interested in some Over-Ear headphones since I cannot always use my speakers at home. I want a pair that can be driven without an amplifier or any other equipment. Price range something like $150-200 maybe.

Well, I'm selling my Sony MDR-XB1000s. They have a 70mm driver and lord almighty, the bass is ridiculous. I'm selling them for $250 if you want them. You don't NEED an amp; they sound great without it, but an amp will still make it sound that much better.

Very best,

MalVeauX is the very reason why I made my recent purchase of the Q40's I actually just got them today. I have been listening to Trance and Dubstep all day. For their price they are unbelievable, the bass is so boomy and just awe. But I'm using the E11, unamped their bass is still really boomy.

Get the HFI-580 definitely, they are good handling details on music.
