Are you going to be using these headphones at work (like at an office)? There are open headphones that leak out noise, and there are closed headphones that do not.

then definitely get the JVC AD900's, really well rounded and Best bang-4-buck under $150 imho.

JVC HA RX900 and Audio Technica M50 are both good options to look into. Check out some reviews and see what suits you best, that would be my recommendation.

No, I work night shift so I'm pretty much by myself. I guess either one would be fine. Actually come to think of it I would prefer closed headphones.

Yes, headphones are better with dedicated amps, though to varying degrees. Open headphones do not leak out much sound when you're listening at a "normal" listening volume.

Bass is usually described less of how much there is and more of how much you feel it... you'll find that you'll get more "thump" with closed headphones.

If i got the jvc 900s would i need a dedicated amp? Since they are the cheapest suggestion i could buy a dedicated amp. I would t know what to look for in a headphone amp though.

Those headphones don't need to be amped..they will sound just fine without one. To be honest you really don't need an amp until you get into a much higher league. Yes amping may improve sound quality slightly in low end headphones but it will most likely not be noticeable until you get into headphones that have a higher impedance.

Edit: Dedicated amps can also be very expensive and are not really recommended until you're making a large long term investment into a sound setup tongue.gif

You can get the KOSS Pro DJ 100. Great headphones, some even prefer that than the M50.
