It doesn't have Dr Dre. beats bass, but it definitely has bass. I'm sure you can make it sound real good with proper equalizer settings. I am a hip-hop guy so bass is very important for me and so far I'm pretty satisfied with these all-around headphones and how they seem to be good for everything.

Amazon.com: Ultrasone PRO 550 S-Logic Surround Sound Professional Headphones: Electronics

Edit: I am also a very big PC gamer. Not disappointed as far as gaming goes.
Edit #2: They come in silver, not blue.
Edit #3: My soundcard is shipping tomorrow so all of this is the difference I heard with on-board. Meaning the bass with proper EQ settings + soundcard might be much better then my 1st impression of it.
First off, thank you for giving your music tastes in the beginning of the thread, it really helps us out.

I second this suggestion for the Pro 550s. Ultrasone designs them to have adequate soundstage (but really good for a closed headphone), and they have phenomenal bass response. They are quickly overtaking the ATH-M50s (which have recently experienced a price hike due to popularity) as the most commonly reccomended closed headphone here.

They are a really a 'do-it-all' headphone, suited to mostly any genre, and still able to game with somewhat accurate positional audio cues.

So as of right now, I'm going for a pair of Sennheiser HD 558's, and if that falls through I think I'll eventually pick up the Ultrasone Pro 550's.

Thanks all!
