You say you don't want IEMs but they're really the only way to get good sound quality on public transit. You need at least some passive noise isolation, or it won't matter if you spend 20 bucks or 100.

Open headphones are a pretty bad choice since you will just annoy other people on the bus with your music while you try to raise the volume enough to compete with the normal sounds of transit.

Since you listen to metal / rock it's slightly less of a problem, but I find with anything other than IEMs I can't hear half the notes in classical music. If you listen to older rock and metal where some notes are quiet, you won't hear them on the bus.

The JVCs at least look like they have closed backs, so probably not that bad to go with them. Plus you can put them around your neck and pretend to be cool when you're not using them. Hipster seal of approval hehe ^^
