Default Standard phones for portable use ($300-500)

I want to buy 'phones (not large ones: IEMs, earbuds or supra-aural 'phones) for portable use. The budget is about 300-500 USD.

I don't want to buy any custom IEMs, because there are no one audiologist who able to create a proper ear impression in my area.

Some mounth ago I was advised to buy Stax SR-001 portable set, but no it's discontinued. Now I have read dfkt's review of Earsonics SM3 and was very impressed of their SQ. Are there any 'phones better for this price range available on the market?

Some extra info:

I listen the following kinds/genres of music:
-Metal (Orphaned Land, Korova, Angizia, Adversus, Arcturus)
-Rock (King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Anathema)
-Heavy metal (Manowar, Betray my secrets)
-Acoustic (Tenhi, Endraum)

My DAP is Sansa Clip+. And I'm not a basshead.
