Default 90$ earbud or portable headphone for metal and rock?

Hi everyone

I need an earbud or portable headphone for walks and riding public transportation listening metal and rock, ocassional movie soundtrack music from Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and iRiver T10.
Budget is around 90$.
I want earbuds or portable headphones(on or over ear), do not want IEMs, can't stand them.
Open or closed doesn't really matter.
For reference I have been using Sennheiser MX460 for 5 years with a period of Sony MDR-AS30(really like this behind the neck design).

I've been reading the forum for a few days now and checking the local stores and a couple of online ones to see what's available to me.
I have narrowed the choice down to these models(of course, if you have a better recommendation, fire away ) that have acceptable design and price.

Audio-Technica ATH-SJ55BK, ATH-CKP200
AKG K 430
AKG K 518 DJ
AKG K514 mkII
AKG K450/451
Sennheiser PMX685i
Grado iGrado
Sennheiser PMX90
Sennheiser HD 419
Sennheiser MX 985, I can get these for 70$, which is a really good discount if I understand right.
They are the reason that I have started the quest for new phones and the real question is if any of the other headphones have better SQ?

I want the best SQ and possibly durability for my budget.
