I'm new on here, and I've been researching tons of different earbuds and headphones, but can't figure out which one would be best for me. I listen to a lot of bass heavy music, and dubstep, but I also listen to a bit of everything else. I'm looking for something in the 100-$200 price range and they can be either earbuds, or good looking on-ear headphones, I don't want over ear and it has to be good looking so I can wear them outside my house.

I got to try out the m80's and liked the sound quality but they were pretty ugly

Well I have. They're ok but not hard to beat. Clamping force gets uncomfortable. It has a spike in the low-mid treble and the rest is a little uneven. Soundstage and instrument seperation is pretty bad (but I don't have much experience with on ears. It may be the nature of the form factor). The bass is pretty undefined and a little loose.
Overall clarity is ok.

The price to performance ratio, it's all messed up.

Yep. With Beats, you pay for all the marketing/advertising that makes you (and everyone else) think that they are cool.
