You should review the sony mdr zx110. They are pretty cheap, I think you can even find them for around 15 dollars, and they sound really nice for that price. Probably not audiophile quality, but I really enjoy the sound that comes out of them. Very clear, fairly detailed (although lacking in detail when compared to my sennheisers or audio technicas, but not by a huge amount), pretty balanced, pretty spacious sounding. I think some might say they are slightly bass heavy, but the bass doesn't overpower at all to me. The sound is a little on the wooly/dry side (maybe a little veiled perhaps?), but overall very good.

If you like a v-shaped signature, want something portable and with good isolation, give the Meizu HD50 a try.

 

They are an amazing value. Premium build quality, excellent portability, surprisingly comfortable for an on-ear, good isolation (closed), generous accessories included, easy to drive w/mobile devices (32ohms).

 

Typical consumer v-shaped signature, but the bass isn't bloated or artificially boosted. Slightly recessed mids. Decent soundstage. There are a few threads on HF discussing them and reviews elsewhere.

 

You can get them everywhere for $60-$65, and sometimes as cheap as $45 if you're lucky enough to catch them on sale from sites like GearBest. You will need to spend twice as much to get hey sound like cans that cost twice as much. Whenever I see them on sale for $45, I usually buy a spare pair (to have on hand as gifts, for my daughter, etc).

 

For a smaller budget, the Panasonic RP-HTX7 from your list is a good value (good entry-level can, but were just too harsh for me - I gave mine away).

 

I also just picked up a pair of Philips SHL3300 for $20 shipped from newegg (a steal), which sound great out of the box & are slightly moddable for improvements as well.

 

While the RP-HTX7 and SHL3300 are plastic-fantastic contruction, and nowhere near as compact/portable as the HD50, for the price they are great cans.
