I love how you started this thread out lol.  It basically reads like "Hey I'm getting old so I need new headphones" :D.  Judging from your musical tastes I think an open headphone might work better.  I would suggest getting the HD598s, this usually my go to for a headphone upgrade in this price range.  It looks like they're going for roughly $188 now on Amazon.  I believe the M80 is an on ear headphone not an over ear but I could be wrong about that.  Also i have never heard either of those headphones.

Best cans in that price range are probably the Q 701, DT 880 and the (for $49 more and currently being closed out) HE 400.

How about: the Sennheiser 598 (amping helps but not needed, replaceable cable, great soundstage, relatively neutral sound                          but mid-centric)

                       Phillips Fidelio X1 (amping is not necessary, unrepaceable pads, balanced but bassy and fun sound)

                       SoundMAGIC HP200 (amping is definitely needed for the 200's- they sound like the HD650's but with more                            exciting treble)                               

                       HifiMan HE-400 (amping is definitely needed, great bass extension but fatiguing upper mids and treble for                              some, a bit heavy)

                       Beyerdynamic DT880 (amping is needed, neutral with a slight leaning toward treble, semi-open)

                       HifiMan HE-300 (amping helps but is not needed, lush, warm sound)

                       Beyerdynamic DT990 (amping is needed, recessed mids with tons of bass and treble)

                       

I would recommend for you overall the X1's, 598's or the DT 880's. If you have a more powerful amp, the HP200 and HE-400 are wonderful choices.

 

Hope this helped! :D 

 

EDIT: Sorry for the typing, I can't seem to make it neat. Apologies.
