Default Please help to choose headphones

I'm in search of headphones and need any help I can get.

What I want:
full size, closed cans
circumaural (don't want to trouble people in transport with loud music)
for outdoor use
with soft headband, probably leatherette pads
source will be my sony a826 and se W20i phone, thats why I need interchangeable cable (hope I could make short one by myself)
price up to 90$/ 60eur (probably will order on internet)
now about the sound ^_^: don'l like too much highs (crispy), they make my ears bleed; I like deep bass, as in sound description thread - warm and weighty; I'm not a basshead, but still, bass is important.
on the music: almost any kind, starting with "la roux" and "the cardigans" to "deine lakaien" and "sopor aeternus", also bit of rap and metal/rock. Almost no classical music.
Now I'm using old and cheap Sehnheiser hd201 and they lack bass a lot.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

P.S. - Sorry for posting in reviews section, somehow missed it. If possible, transfer post to main headphones section.

check out the sony xbr500. also the akg 518. I like my senn hd428, but without the right source they can have lacking bass impact. I have heard good things about the JVC M750 as well. I personally have loved the audio technica sets I have heard so anything you can afford from them would be good too.

Thanks for reply, but all mentioned phones have 1 drawback - built in cable. As for using mp3-player I need cable about 1.5m long (no less). But for using with mobile phone headphones cable has to be about 20 cm long, cause I got ericssons RCU (hpm82). The best solution would be smth like in philips 8900 (I heard they are good, but are open type, so no-go).

you could alway mod the cable and use an extension. Your price dictates a built in cable. Custom cables typically come in the higher price brackets.
