    I own a pair of x1 full size turtle beaches for xbox. Other then a little bit of rattling at high volume, I love them. The bass is heavy but muddy, but I like it. Especially when I turn it up with srs wow effects in windows media player. I'm going for quantity not quality(bass, not everything else). Unfortunetely, the x1s take USB power so I can't use them on the go like I'd like to.(not that I would anyway they have a big nerdy mic hangin off the side.) price range is about 40-60 bucks. Cheap, I know, but I'm not made out of money. I want full size ones that cup around the ear. Like i implied before, I care about sound quality but not for bass I just want there to be a LOT. Are these what I want? Ps I listen to dubstep.

    Hi Jared

    I cannot recommend something at this price that I believe would genuinely satisfy me quality wise - at least not in a full sized headphone anyway.

    I have been told these are good but they are on ear which might get you more soundwise with this budget.

    When the WS50 and WS70 came in we were really impressed - good feedback from customers as well - This is more along the lines of a headphone which will give a genuinely satisfying improvement in quality, they are smooth and sweet with good detail, quite lush sounding:)
