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.
