I prefer open air headphones, however if closed headphones sound better then open air, I rather choose the product with better sound quality. if it was possible to find open headphones with the same quality as closed headphones I would obviously pick them.

All right, well then I agree with chinesekiwi. I thought you wanted open-backed cans regardless of SQ when I made my suggestion. Yeah, the PRO 550's would suit your needs very well. Definitely would be great for dubstep.
