my two main choices are

i have owned:

got this for FREE, i would NEVER buy bose. they were decent, not worth the price. comfort and noise cancelation was awesome though

etymotic ER6 (second best headphones ive ever heard)

my sennheiser CX6 (best pair of headphones ive ever heard)

ive heard beats by dr drey. i am not impressed.

basically how would these two headphones stack up against each other, and how would they strack up against the headphones ive previously owned, and how would they stack up against the famed hd555's

and how well does amplication work with them, also, can anyone find me the SPL and THD specs on the crossfade? i am getting headphones from apple only, i want the best headphones for around $300 or less can buy. aethsetis, comfort mattter, cool things like noise cancellation and portability are a plus. sound quality is number one, price is not a question, i can even go over $400 if i really need to. WHICH are the best headphones in the apple store, is it worth getting the crossfades? i love electroic music, metal (melodic death metal in particular), hard rock, chill music like drums and bass, good hip hop... but yeah.

bass is a HUGE dynamic of my music. i want DETAILED, CLEAR bass, where i can hear songs like chiron - all that remains and hear the double bass pedals with all the detail, and i want it to HIT and thump on my head while doing so. i also want detailed highs and mids as well, but i want bass to be an impact, comfort is pretty important.

i need help finding new headphones lol. the b&w seem to have redarded ammounts of minimal distortion which i like. the sheepskin pads held on by manets is awesome too. it hink it might lack in bass, and i want to be able to amplify my headphones with a tube amp.

so i think i'm going with the vmoda. any other reccomendations form apple store?

I was looking through the Apple store selection and this one stood out to me:

I don't own it personally but I saw some reviews on Head-Fi about them and people seem to like them quite well... http://www.head-fi.org/products/shure-srh840/reviews
