At 120USD, these seem to be killer - I am gonna grab them myself at some point:

At 79USD, the Hippo VBs are indeed a great choice, especially IMO for your stated musical preferences. They are versatile, pretty durable and sound great.

At around 40USD, I am a huge fan of the Maximo i590s. I am probably the only one on ABi with them, but I love em. The build quality is quite great, lifetime warranty from the company [who offers great customer service - I know for a fact], awesome included accessories. And guess what? They sound pretty great. Seriously. Firm bass that can extend quite low, very strong mids and top end. They take to EQing from all my players very very well.

Check the reviews online and on that other site on the Maximos. They deserve to be a serious consideration for anyone looking in this price range IMO.

cheers and good luck!
