Hi everybody, As stated in the title I am looking to buy a new pair or headphone or iem for around ~300S. 
I currently have AKG's 480NC, thus be assured that anything in that price range will be a great improvment for me. However I am not an expert yet and I am thus wondering if it is worth it to put this kind of money into headphone/iem right now ?
I listen mostly to electro (think Gesaffelstein, Jaar, Solomun, Ruiz,...), some rap and a bit of everything else but not much. Thus I want something that will have strong bass and a dynamic profile. I've tried Sennheiser Momentum for example and didn't like it. 
I said iem or headphone because I am open to both, what I want is great sound isolation to be able to confortably listen to my music without being too much disturbed by external noises. 
I've done some search on the web and I always come back to some models but except for the Momentum I am not able to try them that's why I am asking for your experience to guide me through my search !
If you need any further info let le me know;
 
Thanks in advance,

I'd guess you want something more aggressive sounding?

Sennheiser Amperior, HD25, V-Moda XS and M-100 are all in that category.

Thanks for your answer.
The m100 is on my short list.
Is it better than the other ones your proposer or do they all sound different and it's more a matter of taste ?

I would say it's both. But among them, the M-100 has the most bass. The XS and Amperior are slightly brighter.
