I have looked for a straight 380 cable as I prefer a straight cable too. Unfortunately I've never been able to find one.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 is available to buy with your choice of a straight or coiled cable. However, it is not detachable. Just in case that option works for you.

+1 agreed. if price is a concern, I personally don't think you can get anything better for its current low price. however, your budget does go high enough that you might be able to snipe something else that is $200+ on a sale.
HD 558 would probably be better yes, as open headphones generally offer better sound.
But by being open, they leak sound which can be either perfectly ok or unsuitable for certain people (i.e. nocturnal people with roommates, girlfriends).
