The Sennheiser HD558's are a great pair of headphones for this price (although they may be slighter more than $200). They are quite versatile headphones in regards to genre and have a detailed an accurate bass. While I wouldn't call it an emphasised bass (it can be EQ'ed if you wish), it is not lacking at all.

These 'phones can be driven straight from a computer or even an ipod, but at the same time they do benefit from amplification. (The e11 will work great as an upgrade later on).

 

If you're looking for a portable set to use on public transport and the like, then the ATH M50's are hard to beat for the price.

+1 for HD558 here, has great soundstage and midrange, not fatiguing sound signature from the senns

(even better soundtsage and clarity if foam modded at the expense of a little bass)
