Default Yes, time for some headphones (suggestions?)

Ok I'll try to give as much info as I can think of to help you guys help me

Price range max. = $50 or around

I do not want in ear headphones. I also do not want REALLY big head phones. Anything in between is what I'm shooting for.

I will be using them with the Iriver clix and also (soon to follow) the ZVM.

I would like them not to leak noise too bad, so I can listen to music in public without disturbing anyone.

Some blocking of outside noise is preferd but I don't want active noise canceling.

High Quality sound is a must (however I'm not an audio junky so I wont pick up on every little thing)

I listen to mostly rock, alt, indie, and some punk, although I do listen to some symphony as well.

Comfort is important, but I wont be wearing these for more than 3 hours at a time.

That's all I can think of for the moment, so I'd appreciate some suggestions. Thanks a lot guys.

I'll either be going with the Sennheiser PX100's or PX200's. Biggest issue I see with the PX100's is they leak sound. Biggest issue with PX200's is they don't have as good of sound has the PX100's, although I'm guessing people are saying that because the 100's or open and 200's are closed. Can anyone give me their opinions on each headphone and tell me which they went for or would go for. Right now I'm leaning toward the 200's.

Sorry to get in late, but I wanted to mention the Koss SportaPro and PortaPro headphones. They're very comfortable -- an odd little foam bar takes most of the pressure off your ears -- and they sound very good.
