I have both the M50s and the M-80s. I like the M50s but love the M-80s. Get the M-80s!
If you can wait a little bit, the V-Moda M-100s are coming out- suppose to have more bass than M-80s and are circumaural; look pretty good to boot.
M-80s are NOT discontinued, though they are on-ear and do take a while to get comfortable for extended listening sessions. They do meet most of the OP prerequisites. The M-100s will be available very soon- they are circumaural but will be a little over your budget. 
I have the M50s and M-80s- bass is good on both, but hits a little harder with the M-80s. Mid-range on the M-80s is more pronounced which I prefer. Both are built very well, however M-80s look better and are smaller- supra-aural vs the M50s which are circumaural. Neither leak sound, however the M-80s let in more sound. M-80s take a little longer to become comfortable.
I own both and I prefer the bass from the M80s; though it is not significantly different in quantity, the M80s bass hits a little harder (slight mid-bass hump) while the M50s extend a little deeper. The M50s, overall, are more analytical and sterile than the M80s, which are just more musical- likely due to a more pronounced mid-range. Both are good headphones that are very well constructed, though hands down the M80s are more portable and look better in public. For EDM,...
x2 for the M80s. Very good cans that just sound "right"- nice bottom end, terrific mids and a treble that you can listen to for hours. I like them much more than my AT M50s.
1. V-Moda Crossfade M80 2. ATH-M50S 3. TDK BA100 4. Koss KSC75 5. Koss A130
Definitely describes the TDK BA100s. Check Newegg- often have them for as low as $45 ($74.99 right now). Great sounding earphones!
TDK BA100 would fit that description. Very good IEMs IMO.
Like stealing at this price!
