Depends largely on what you're using it for - primarily walking around, I assume, since you want the inline mic and remote? Also, do you want on-ear or over-ears? Over ears will sound better in general because of the passive noise isolation, but they can be a problem if you're walking around and don't want to get hit by a bus.
The PSB M4U 2 over ears gets universally good reviews, and has an inline remote and mic, and has good passive/active/noise cancelling modes to boot. Only downside is the price ($400), but if I had the money, it's what I would get.
I've heard good things about the new Yamaha Pro line - good sound, good looking and all have the inline remote. The Pro 300 ($200) are on-ear. The 400 and 500 ($300 and $400) are over ear, but if you're spending that much, go for the M4Us.
The Sennheiser HD 280 ($100) and HD 380 Pro ($200) are both really good (both are over ear). The 380s especially are very comfortable for long sessions, and if you can get the it on sale (I got mine for $160) its well worth the upgrade. Big downside for you is that there's no inline mic and remote. I use a Fiio E02i Rocky headphone amp ($30) for those functions when I'm out and about, but it's a bulky solution. Not a huge deal for me, since I use them at my desk 90% of the time, but if you're primarily using these on the go, there are enough cans out there with the inline mic/remote built in that you should go with those.
