Default 70-80$ Closed Headphones?

Hello!

I still truly enjoy my own TMA-1 headphones but recently my friend's Sennheiser HD 201s broke on him after only owning them in a half year. A shame, since he really liked them.

Anyway, this gives him an opportunity to try something new. His only requirement is that the build quality is good.

Price Range: ~70$
Type/Design: Full size headphones. Closed Style.
Circumaural: Ellipsoid or Supra-aural I guess. He has previously owned the HD 201s, so preferably something along that line.
Primary location of use: On the go. Almost every day.
Preferable SQ or Sound Signature: Along the lines of the HD 201s is my guess. He doesn't know and unfortunately I never had a good chance to listen to the HD 201s.
Media: It's very mixed. He listens to a little bit electronical, a little bit Rock and a little bit Pop.
Source: His portable player, an old non-modified iPod Classic. No volume restrictions, it's from the US.

Could you guys help me out on this one? Don't worry, Your expertise is appreciated a lot.

Sennheiser hd280 pro's might do the trick. No personal experience... The refurbs are going cheap.

Thank you sideways!

One question I couldn't exactly get an answer to on Google: Is that cable detachable?

EDIT: Neither seem to ship to Denmark unfortunately so this might be a no-go. Anything from amazon.de, amazon.co.uk or any other online store in Europe would be very welcome as the shipping is lower then!

I don't think its detachable. I have a set of JVC m750 cans and I enjoy them. I picked them up for $50. Also the Sennheiser hd428 is a good set and can be had for about the same price. I have owned both and would recommend them.

Thank you IDvsEGO, we both appreciate your help!

My friend's only worry is that the next pair of headphones will break because of the cable once again. A few questions on that topic:

-Have you had any issues with the cable on either headphones?
-In case the cable gets faulty over time, is it possible to replace it somehow?
