In before anyone says HD555/HD595/AD700 because those are absolutely NOT the type of headphones for his music genres. Now that we have that out of the way, I believe you are looking for a closed headphone akin to the Audio Technica ATH-M50 ("M50s" if you want a straight cable), a used Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 ohm (used), JVC HA-RX700 or RX900, or an Ultrasone solution (Chinesekiwi please elaborate).

The ATH-M50's would be a good buy for you.

Audio Technica M50 is almost within your budget. See if you can find it under 150 euro somewhere.

For DnB/Dubstep.. I'd go for the M50's or check out the Ultrasone HFI-580's. Great cans. The DT770's would be a good choice too, but there bass is a bit more muddier than the M50's/Ultrasones, IMO. Still good cans though, it just

depends if you want a more punchy bass or bigger sounding bass. The M50's/Ultrasones still have great low ends on them though. I prefer them for DnB, since for DnB you want fast, punchy, deep, raw non muddy bass.
