Do not get the Beats. Stick with sennheiser. The 555's don't have the greatest bass right off the bat, but after you let them break in they have a much fuller and defined sound. Can't really say anything about the 595's

You should get a different pair of headphones. Check out Beyerdynamic, Audio technica, Denon, etc. Stay away from Beats by dr.dre.

What type of music do you listen to?

The Beats are not bass heavy at all. The reason why people think it's bass heavy is because of the Dr. Dre / rap association + that when people try them in stores such as Best Buy and Apple stores, they are heavily bass EQ'ed to suit the potential demographic. They lean towards the bass but are not bass and bass only.

Anyway OP,
What's your music tastes?
Budget?
How are you going to use it?

My recommendation is the Beyerdynamic DTX 800.

P.S.: I'm all about Treble xD (can we say that? lol)
Have you considered in-ears? Is this for use on portables such as a mp3 player or at home or both?

The Beats are quite bassy, and can get really loud. I like a lot of heavy rock, and they don't work too well for my style. But, for my few rap songs that I listen to, they sound fantastic.

I would get the Sennheiser HD 555's, since you said you like treble.

if you are all about treble, the 595's are for you. i have the 595's and they are the best cans i have ever used. i cant keep them off my head
you could have someone from the US buy them for you, and ship them to you +some monies for the trouble.

P.S.: I listened to music on the Beats and it's sounds O.K., what about the HD555 ?
Headroom will price match to close to Amazon levels, and they do international shipping. Find any HD595 on Amazon and use Headroom's 'best price guarantee' to submit it for a price match, you'll get an email back (likely) saying that they won't match that price, as the Amazon store is not an authorized dealer, but they will offer you a price much lower than their official list price. I just got a pair of HD595s shipped for $195, wheras their list price was $260ish.

There isn't exactly a lot of choice when you live in Canada. Even though I got "ripped off", I still saved almost $100 compared to the cheapest Canadian store, both online and brick and mortar. :/

Sennheiser. Always one of the best brands in headset quality.

The Dr. Dre beats are overpriced. They are fairly decent headsets, but they are targeted at specific music, and again, are overpriced.
