You won't do much better than the Sennheiser HD650 within that price range. NO need to spend more. You could spend a little more and try the HD660S, but some say they're not different enough from the 650 to justify the price increase.

i heard alot about the HD 660s and heard them there pretty good but i am also looking at the dt 1990, but as far as my closed headphone i might do the dt 1770s
