I know what you're going to say. Putting the money into proper headphones will be better than having meh speakers and meh headphones.
Still, the OP wants what he wants and I also don't think going with the speakers I listed are a bad way to go.
As for the OP, which headphones should you get? I would try to find a store that will let you listen to some headphones before buying them like guitar center or something.
I like the Grado SR225i. They sound great to me. I listen to a lot of alternative rock and whatnot. Makes for a good match. Those can easily be found under 200, especially used on headfi.
Umm..hmm.. The..Ultrasone Pro 750s can sometimes be found for under 200 used. I know the Denon D2000s were/are going for 200-210, but would definitely benefit from an amplifier.
Food for thought. You should definitely give them a try if you can though. They all sound different.

simca, im not ruling out your speakers, just right now it seems like the other things would be a better investment as im lacking in those departments.
I will have to see where guitar center or something similar is so i can check em out in person.
chinesekiwi, its pretty much a 50/50 split, howver if the headphones are that good and sound that much better i will prolly use them more often then not, assuming their comfy!
