best exhaust solution for a more aggressive sounding engine?

what's up people. I searched and couldn't really find anything that talked about this in particular...

I love the sound of the engine. I don't like exhausts that sound like fart cans.

basically, I want the car to be louder and more powerful, but I want it to seem stock. stock cars have a balanced sound. I don't want my car to be unbalanced like a Honda Civic with some stupid exhaust.

what would you recommend I do to get more free flowing exhaust, a beefier sounding engine, and decent power gains without sounding like an idiot?

would headers be the best way to achieve this, since headers are directly connected to the engine?
