Recently had a sony mdr v-55 , and they sounded awesome from thumpy bass with warm notes and all . . also the clarity was awesome good..but gone kaput...one side not working anymore..

So want to buy a good and decent pair of headphones with right amount of bass

i am not a hardcore audiophile but like to listen all kind of songs..

My budget is around 6-7k
..
Was looking around and found this :

please comment about these ...or refer me to any nice pair of headphones

p.s. if my headphone can be fixed then please help me in any way

The Crusher is better than ATH WS77. It has very good clarity, the mids are crisp and clear. See some reviews at amazon.com. What makes it super unique is the sensation55 effect, bass that can vibrate your head, which you can control it.
Id recommend Audiotechnica M50x which is a great headphone but it's out of your budget.

Yes the bass is tight and accurate in M50x, but not skull shattering like the crusher.
If you can wait and get the M50x it'd be the best thing, it has much more detail..overall one of the best cans out there.

JVC HA-MR55X with FiiO E11K total should be less than Rs 8K, But bass and fun will be like no other. Otherwise get Beyer DTX 910.

Skullcandies are toys and not actual headphones. Take a look a Beyerdynamic DT series if you want a real set of headphones with solid bass.
Dt 770: open
Dt 880:semi open
Dt 990:closed

If you wan't sound quality in budget then don't look anywhere else and just go for Audio Technica ATH-Mx series. Those give the best sound quality for their price and I've pretty much listened to most of the brands (Bose, JBL, Steelseries, Skullcandy, Audio Technica, Monster, Sennheiser etc). I went to this mall and at that time there was an audio gallore at 1st floor. They had so many products there and the whole floor was filled with audio shops. I think it was some kind of promotional thing. I wouldn't be surprised if ATH-M50x beats more expensive headphones. Every audiophile knows that Skullcandy is garbarge in sound quality. The problem with skullcandy is their soundstage is an artificial crap. It's like someone just put their equalizer on steroids and it's just bad. Even my Cowon EM1 beat my friend's overpriced inkd 2 when I compared them. Skullcandy IEM are pathetic and their Headphones are not pathetic but bad. +1 Audio technica for purists and audiophiles who want best experience in budget. If you got money to blow then go for Sennheiser and not the overrated beats crap.

It's not as subjective as you think it is. Skullcandy is a fashion accessory. Beats and Skullcandy can't make good headphones(at least for what you pay them) because most of their money goes into the advertising department. Have you ever seen an Audio Technica ad?
No true Audiophile is ever going to recommend you a Skullcandy or Beats. Take a look at the head-fi forums. People over there laugh at these 2 brands.
+1 to Audio Technica ATH M50x.

[MENTION=248727]seamon[/MENTION]: Lol you're talking about something you never tried/nor intend to try. Most of skullcandy headphones maybe crap but that doesn't mean everything is crap or they cannot make good sounding headphones.
The guy here said in his post hes not a hardcore audiophile and looking for a headphone with BASS, and in a budget, hence I suggested Crusher because it's something unique and bassheads gonna love it, n fits his budget.
