Denon AH-D1100 $99
This is a great pair of headphones for Dub-step. Very heavy bass and large quantities, you will feel it when the bass drops. It is clear and crisp and quite fun and bright. The mid-range is not very recessed or lost even though it has a-lot of bass. It does have ALOT of sibilance however so it's just OK with Hip-Hop. When I wear my Denons, words with a "S" in them sound like a screaming hissing cat.
 
Audio Technica M-50/M-50S $129
Lots of bass as well, bit less then the AH-D1100 however vocals are clearer for Hip-Hop, not too much sibilance. FYI: (Hissing sound at S sounds are sibilance. Ex: SSHHHHift)
Get the Technica's!

i have a beyer dt990, i like it, if you want closed cans, you may want to check out the beyer dt770. sony xb500's sound quality is only "meh" to me, the amount of bass is tremendous though. it will never be my main headphone but its nice for occassional bass thumping

It's hard to beat the denon d2k if you can find them in your price range. There at least two on the for sale forum here now.
