Looking for a good over ear walking headphone for listening to a variety of music with a lot of electronic and hip-hop

I walk around and listen to music to stay alive.  I listen to everything.  Jazz, rock, electronic, pop, hip-hop and more.  I have a concentration of electronic and hi-hop but my other music is just as important to me.  I auditioned a pair of Bowers and Wilkins P5s and the look, build and feel were ideal and the warm sound was  nice at times - some folky music sounded good - hip-hop sounded terrible.  A lot of songs sounded muddy.  It seemed way overpriced.  I will be walking around (sometimes biking - so better isolation is a plus but not THE most important feature) with an iPhone so this is a no amp set-up for now.  Where should I go next?  My max is 300$ but I would go that high if it was worth it.  Thanks for your help.

Important thing I forgot to mention, I am looking for a pair of on ear headphones.  And even though I like a lot of electronic and hip-hop, I enjoy strong mids and warm sound, albeit with good bass and highs if possible - price permitting.  Because of my budget I am looking for something maybe towards 200 but if exactly what I am describing is waiting for me at 3 I am willing to break the bank for it.
