    Hey -

    Been looking for a decent pair of headphones for a while now (or as decent as budget allows!). I have the following requirements:

    - Indoor (mainly office) use; unfortunately this means mostly driven via bog standard pc sound card/ mobile phone - May also use a NAtive Instruments Audio 2 DJ soundcard.
    - Closed back due to office use
    - Very very ocasional use with Audio2DJ and tracktor - really not bothered about 'dj' headphones as I am sure any pair will do for this :D

    I play mainly rock and a bit of Dance/Electronic.

    I was looking at the Shure SRH440s but am worried about the lack of bass that some have reported (yes it is very subjective and varies from person to person). What others should I look at? I was also considering the sennheiser HD 380 pros but get the impression they are more a DJ style headphone.

    SRH-440 are actually quite balanced - although they lack a bit of bass. Have a look at these -

    Ultrasone HFI-450 Closed-Back Foldable Headphones (HFI 450)

    Sennheiser HD25-SP II Monitor DJ Headphones (HD 25-SP II DJ)

    or treat yourself and go for

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Closed Monitor Headphones Coiled Cable

    Shure SRH750DJ Professional Closed Back DJ Headphones (SRH750)

    Ultrasone DJ1 Closed-Back Foldable DJ Headphone (DJ 1)

    These all work as studio/DJ headphones as I guess most DJ's are sort of producers now.
