V-Moda Verza.  I have been in portable audio nirvana with this combo.
D600 vs. PRO900 or SigDJ?  Regardless, I would give the edge in comfort to the D600, although the Sig DJ has a more secure fit for portable use.  I found the D600 would slip quite a bit when walking. My amp is the V-Moda Verza.
I am familiar with both of those headphones and the answer is a definitive yes across the board regarding the D600.  Bass is closer related to the PRO900 from memory, but I consider their highs harsh and mids recessed by comparision.  The Sig DJ is really in another league, as it should be for the price.

Glad to offer a good suggestion.  Here is one more- I jammed out to Led Zeppelin for about two hours the other night hearing details I never heard before.  Add classic rock to the Sig DJ's checklist.
While I can't speak to the IEM comparison you are requesting (it is obviously much more challenging to demo IEMs vs. headphones for hygenic reasons- for some reason I just had a vision of a big wad of ear wax stuck to a silicon tip),  one big difference I see between the AH-C100 is the design.  The C300 comes with a ton of ear fittings including multiples sizes and types of tips and a unique, secure fit ear stabilizer, similar to the new Bose design and Monster I-sport,...
They do lack microdetail, but are highly capable with just about everything else.
The NAD HP50 may be another option to consider.
Push your budget to $80 for Denon AH-C300's and you will be a happy camper.  These were selling for $250 last year.  The WOW factor of the bass and sub-bass on these make them the most fun basshead IEMs I have heard anywhere near their price and the mids/highs are respectable.  They are like a Q40 in an IEM, but with even a bit more mid bass.
After spending months with the Ultrasone Signature DJ, I have come to the conclusion that they are so perfect for me that I almost feel as if they were custom designed, to the point that I can say I have lost interest in hearing other headphones, especially paired with the V-Moda Verza which I have found to be the ideal portable amp for them.  I thought I would list some highlights as to why they are perfect for me, understanding that others have different tastes and...
