Default Sealed cans - under $100?

Hey everyone,

I'm needing a recommendation for a relatively flat set of headphones similar to my set of K601s (as close as I can get for the budget at least). They need to isolate well as I'm in a room where someone consistently has the TV on and the like though. They can't be IEMs though either.

Some cans that caught my eye:

Sony MDR-V6
Beyerdynamic DT-231PRO
Shure SRH240
NuForce UF-30

I've also seen some semi-open like the JVC HA-RX700, but I'm hesitant since isolation is a large goal too.

Any other suggestions or picks from what's listed already? Thanks.

-Shike

Might I recommend the audio technica m50. It's ~$110 online, so it's a little over your budget, but not much. And they are good closed headphones.

+1 - these are a great sounding set of closed cans, I highly recommend them.

Sorry, but $100 really is the cut-off. Honestly the closer to $75 or so the better, but the absolute max I can extend my budget is $100.
