Unlesss you've already clicked the buy now button, i've got another suggestion:
I get the impression that you are Australian so here's a fully Australian owned mob:
(i have bought from them several times in the past, very reliable and professional)
About $5 more expensive than the Jaycar model you had linked to earlier. Very neutreul, and has superb treble & excellent midrange for the price. I prefer them to my DT770s (3x the price) if I want isolation and know i'll just be listening to talk radio for example. The bass is quite good, but if you add some bass boost they can really thump if you want them to so they are definitely not lacking in their ability to produce deep bass.
Bassheads might choose to add a small amp with good bass boost (like the tiny Fiio E6) but you sound like you definitely won't need it. I think you would really enjoy those, but in saying that, I don't own any of the other headphones in this thread to compare them to.
My daily drivers for when i need open headphones are the Audio Technica ATH-TAD500 (http://headphones.com.au/psingle?productID=596)
