Help Phone recommendations, please and thanks!

Hey, everybody. I'm not much of a headphone guy, and I mostly just use IEMs cuz I'm normally on the go. But, I've taken to watching videos on my laptop at home, and want to get some nice headphones because IEMs irritate my ears after wearing them for a while.

So, without further ado, some specs:

-Preferably around 80-100 USD, but price is somewhat flexible.
-Portable to the point that I can move and bend over without them falling off.
-Closed preferable, but open could work, too.
-Circumaural preferable, but again not an end-all.
-Mostly at home, possibly sometimes in a gymnasium/field house (which is why I was thinking closed, for the noise isolation aspect). Not for during exercise, just that I'll be in a noisy environment sometimes.
-Balanced sound quality.
-TV shows/movies, rock/heavy metal/(some) hip hop.
-Source would mostly be my computer, but also a ZuneHD.

Thanks in advance! And any further info would be helpful because as far as legit headphones go, I'm not exactly an expert.

Oh yea, and I live in America, so being able to find any phone's shouldn't be too difficult.
