Default closed / half closed headphones (new headphones for a new player)

my fuze+ died and i decided to get a c2. also i want new headphones. i've used only in-ears yet and i do not have much experiences with closed headphones. i still have the denon ah-c360 but i want to use them for sports only.
my price range is up to 60€ and i want to use them in public transportation mainly. i've found a few phones in that price range which sound quite good accodring to some reviews i have read:

Creative Aurvana Live! (for only 50€ at


AKG Acoustics K 518 DJ or K 430
Shure SRH 240

i have got the JVCs already but i am not sure if i like them or not. the isolation is very good but i am not sure if i like the half closed design. also they seem to fall of easily (or maybe it is because i am used to in-ears ).
with a sony mp3player (e-series) they sound good (but a bit muddy) but i will wait until the cowon arrives to tell if the sound is satisfying.

unfortunately i cannot really pre-listen to the shure/creative phones because they aren't sold at the electronic markets here (at least i couldn't find them).

what do you guys think?
