Post Headphones for music production

I'm looking for headphones that are good enough quality for producing Trap music.I have had a look at the Shure headphones but I'm not sure thats the way to go. Any Ideas for around $200-$300

For Trap you probably need some heavy bass-boost headphones, the same that kids use on the street: Dr. Dre studio monster beats.

Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro as used in many many top studios around the world, for a good reason.

Very heavy for continuous use and will eventually crack your head as a nutcracker would do to a nut. And also bass-booster btw (+7,5 dB @ 30 Hz, +5 dB @ 100 Hz).

If you want actual sound without anything getting boosted, you should try Sennheisers.

I would have suggested to try the Audeo PFE 232, which gives a really decent performance, but the Sony MDR-XB700 50mm XB Diaphragm Driver Extra Bass Headphones are nice as well and fits the price range that you're looking for.

I'd say for around $200, the Beyerdynamic DT100 are the best choice I can think of. Just don't go for Beats like jacques antoine advice you to... horrible sound quality.

I was being ironic since I am not convinced that Trap qualifies as music.
