It's tough for me not to suggest the d2k, as you said already that do not want these. Get them anyway. Isolation is not that bad and they pair well with the e10 and are under budget. The sound is fantastic.
If you must look at something else try the Beyer dt770.
Yes, the dt770 is an upgrade. A really nice hp actually. The d1100 never really sounded right to me. The d2k does everything that d1100 set out to do, just better. The dt770 is good across the sound signature with good bass and treble. Just ever so slightly recessed mids.
The D2000 is great, isolation is not super poor, but it's not as isolating as the above two.
All are big upgrades over the D1100.
