Headset would be good though they are not as good as headphones in my experience.
I though about the HD555,how is their bass? are they durable and comfortable?
And umm,the JVC's are 33$,are they good as the HD555?
Also does the M50 cover the whole ear? because the cups seem small.

The JVC is a pretty nice set of headphones, the HD555 from my experience and price range give a decent amount of base. Read some of the reviews there pretty happy (also I was happy with my 555's) The JVCs I never tried but I always heard good things about them and the bigger model thats like 60$ the 900's

Requires some burn in but once done it sounds great!

I use this for monitoring my mixing since I need a flat response and accurate sound, these can get loud and bassy if you want with EQ settings. I also do play games with them and since I get back a clear sound I can actually pinpoint stuff that goes on in a game pretty well... "HEY YOU BACK THERE BEHIND THE BUILDING!! I HEAR YOU WALKING!!" Also the noise isolation is pretty good with these, when my niece is in the room crying I cant hear her at all with music play.... >.> oh wait...

Also there is little to no leakage and has a detachable cable which if it breaks is like $15-$20 but it has a pretty thick cable.

The bass on the HD555 is not even close to the RX700. If electronic is your primary, then you should go up about $50 in price, buy an Ultrasone, and obtain electronica bliss. I have tried the RX700 and HD555. Neither of them can outdo Ultrasone in electronica.
