I thought about Sony MDRXB500 but they are 120$ on ncix and on the Sony official they are 80$.. I wanted to take them in local shop, but here in quebec their all overpriced crap plus 15% taxes and 1/4 of choice.. I listen a lot of dubstep, techno, rap and i have about 100$ I'm very tired of my skullcandy earbuds that i need to push as deep as the tympan for the bass not to sound like a cymbal.

1-What have the much/quality bass for 100$ (without skullcandy and dre)
2-Preferably Senheiser and a durable over time cushion ear pads
3-2.0 not 5.1 or 7.1 nor "vibrating" ear cup type of bass bs i really dislike those.
4-I listen music mostly at night they need to be able to handle loud deep bass, i need Circumaural and Closed-Back.
5-Do i need a amplifier for much/better bass and what are they best bass setup you would recommend at whoever the price tag.
6-Is it possible for headphone to match a highly eq'd z-2300 in term of bass.

Never believe the hype.
Consoles aren't about hardware, they're about good games.

Audiotechnica ATH-M50.
Wonderful headphones, lots of bass, and very detailed, very deep.
I have mine EQ'D, so I can get more out of it, and its absolutely amazing IMO.
They don't have a good soundstage, but it sounds like thats not what you are concerned about.
They can be had for 90-150 bucks, depending on how hard you look. Your best bet is price matching them at a guitar center if you can.
An amp will make them sound better and you'll get a bit more out of em, but its not 100% necessary to enjoy them.

Another viable option is the sony mdr-v6, though the Audiotechnica's would probably be better.

Sounds like you like excess bass, so the Sony XB series would suit that fine.

Could check second hand Beyerdynamic DT770's. That pretty much fits your needs besides the budget. Mind you, does better with proper drive.

I'm old school... Because it was done right the first time.

I got mine for 70,- euro's. But their retail price here at that time was 180,- euro's or something. You'll never know what you find if you don't look. At least now he'll know to jump on one if he sees one he's willing to pay for.

But yeah, new, very much out of his budget.
