My brother is looking for one and has asked me for a a recommendation. I've been out of the loop for quite a while and never even looked at phones with this criteria. He has been using a senn cx-300 (I hope I spelled that right) and was also happy with the hd-25 (cable failure unfortunately put it out of service).
Besides the obvious need for durability and noise isolation, I don't know what phones are good in this price category.
Appreciate your input.
