Default Need recommendation for closed on-ear headphones

After checking out some on-ear headphones today, I've decided to get a pair to replace my IEMs. I'd appreciate your recommendations.

I listened to the Bose OE2 and Klipsch Image One. Both sounded great, but were more than I want to spend. I also saw some Sennheiser HD228 that looked promising, but there wasn't a demo pair. That should give you an idea of the kind of on-ear headphones I'm looking for. Here are the specifics:
  • ~ $75
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • for commuting on the train, so I want a closed design that will keep train noise out and my music in (I ride on the "quiet car," so don't want to disturb the passengers around me).
  • Sansa Clip +
  • prefer musical and detailed sound; no exaggerated bass
  • listen to classic rock, 80's rock and pop, and classical
  • no volume controls or mic in the cable
  • prefer a single cable
  • foldable so I can store them in my bag when I'm not listening to them
My home headphones are Sony MDR-V6, which I really like.

Thanks!

Koss Pro DJ100 perhaps? These headphones emphasize highs and mids rather than lows so it's more suited for your types of music. It's currently about $50 on Amazon.

Thanks, aimran. Those Koss headphones look great, but they're probably a little bigger than I was hoping for. I'm looking for more of a mini headphone, around the size of the ones I mentioned above. Also, one reviewer says that those Koss headphones aren't a good choice for an mp3 player. I'm thinking about ordering them for a second set of home headphones, but I'll keep looking for smaller commuting headphones that are a better match for my Sansa Clip +.
