Hey guys,
 
I made this account just to ask you proffessionals this question..
I got the beats pro at the moment, but everywhere i hear that these suck. So i'm going to sell these and get the Ultrasone pro 900.. The problem is, i usually listen to music with my ipod, i pretty much like music with a lot of bass, like bass boosted music, but i also listen to metal and stuff like that. I heard i need a portable amp and i was looking into the FiiO E10 or anything like that.. But all of this is so hard to sort out when you're a total newbie at this, so i'm asking for you guys help to tell me if i'm going to make the right choice.

C&C BH will be a better choice, or JDS Labs C5 if you can afford it

Not higher than 300 euro's, preferably less than 275.
(393,78 and 360,97 dollars) *This also includes the headphones, which will cost me 295 dollars + 15 dollar shipping)
Also, i should mention i will use the headphone and AMP at school and stuff, if that matters. I don't need 'perfect' sound, just high quality, and since i'm an amateur i'm easy to please.

C'mon guys i need some more help.. Since i'm so used to beats i'm kind of afraid that other brands will be worse than i think, so i might stick with beats while the other brands *Like the ultrasone pro900* might be way better..

OK I'm staying with the beats, the freq response of the pro900's mids are FREAKING TERRIBLE!
The beats solo and studio suck, but the beats pro are a lot better.. Anyways thank you guys, and i'm not going on this thread again because people will hate me.

I even tested the pro900 today, and damn they suck.
I don't understand why all of you are hating on beats, especially the beats pro.

You should try the C&C BH if you want some bang for your buck. Should help you out with the sucky sounding headphone problems you are experiencing.
 
There's many opinions of the amp on the it's thread here:

And you can find it here in eBay.
