Hi guys,
 
Today my samsung galaxy head-phone damaged, this is great time to buy new one!.
Before that I had Sennheiser HD 485 that was really good head-phone but after long use my ears start to pain(a little) but I really really love the sound.
 
I looking head-phone for electronic music most focus on Bass and melody. it's really hard to decide because there are plenty of type.
Please help me to decide what head-phone to buy.
 
Tnx guys!

Hello!
 
If that's the case, I would highly recommend you to go for the HD439 with best bass out of the HD4xx, pretty big to me and does not bleed most importantly. It is a very good headphone for house/electronic music under $100
 
Hope this help!
Billson :)

Keeping in mind that you want to use it for a phone, I'd recommend the Marshall Major FX for about $86. Great separation and soundstage to go with a tremendously weighty and detailed bass. Comparing it to a V-Moda M-80 I'd say it has the M-80 mids with slightly better separation with a lot more bass, so it has a really full warm sound. It's sounds like what V-Moda unsuccessfully went for with the M-100. 
 
 It's also louder than anything else I've heard under $100, so it will sound awesome even without a headphone amp, but absolutely sensational with one.

Do keep in mind that, the amp does not necessarily only make the headphone sound "louder" it also helps improve the sound quality.

I would like to try sony head-phone and there is limited model in israel.
 
Sony MDRV55 , MDR-V700DJ , MDR ZX600 .
 
or the Sennheiser still better? 
 
The bass quality is very important to me.

I have the HD439 and even though it sounds fairly neutral, its bass is adequate enough to enjoy bassy stuff. I have a crap ton of Daft Punk, Deadmau5, some dubstep, and hiphop on my playlist and the HD439 doesn't fail me in those. The light clamp and fabric earpads also make them veeeeeeeeeery comfortable.

Hello!
 
In terms of bass, you mean quality or quantity? they are very different and often cause a bit of confusion. If for quality, HD439 is a great pair of headphone! it is also very comfortable

AFAIK, the HD439 is only an aesthetic upgrade from the HD438 so you can probably save some money by getting the HD438 instead if you can find it. The wheel design may turn you off though, lol.
 
I haven't heard the HD485 so I can't make any comparisons, sorry.
