Default Headphone Recommendations

I've been meaning to get a decent set of cans for a while now, but am new to high-end audio.

  • $150-200 CAD
  • Full-size, preferably semi-open or closed but not priority.
  • Mainly using these @ PC for music > movies.
  • I have a 120gb iPod that I just recently fixed, so I'll be using them with that too.
  • Making beats with FL Studio (this is solely a hobby and NOT priority).
I listen to everything. Hip-hop, Rock, Electro, Metal, Classical, Dubstep/DnB, and the list goes on. I'd like to say I listen to hip-hop the most, but my library is huge I do listen to every genre religiously.

When I first started shopping around, it never occurred to me that I'd have to take an amp into consideration, because I honestly didn't even know of them. I need your advice here as well as it is a pretty big factor when deciding which cans I'm going to purchase. Should I aim for some that are not amp-dependent, or would I be an idiot not to get one?

I've been looking at the HD555's. Call me picky, but I can't say I like the modern look. I'd much prefer a style similar to most AKG full-sized headphones.

Thanks a lot
