Closed, over/on-ear phones for work and commuting - rock mainly, good bass, ideally less than £100/$150

Hope that works as a title :)

 

I need a decent pair of phones to use at work - hence the need for them to be closed/co-worker friendly.

 

I *really* don't get on with IEMs. I find them very uncomfortable.

 

So, I need/want some over/on-ear phones that I can wear for 2/3 hours at a time that sound good and won't annoy the co-workers.

 

I listen to mainly rock/alternative/indie - Replacements, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, NIN and so on. I also really appreciate a decent, controlled bass response.

 

I'd like to spend less than £100/$150, but could quite easily be convinced to spend a bit more.

 

I listen to Sennheiser HD 600s and audio-technica ATH-W1000X at home and like the sound of both.

 

I'll mostly be listening to a Sony Experia Z phone or an iBasso DX50.

 

Phones I like the reviews of (most of which break my budget) are AKG K451, Senn HD 25-1 ii, Beyerdynamic DT1350, but I'm very open to suggestions and don't have the money to make mistakes.

 

Over to you... :)

JVC HA-S500 headphones, they fold so easy to travel with.
