I am in the market for new headphones, and I have very little experience. I currently have Bose AE2 over ear headphones from 2011. I've also had an older model of those. I'm curious if there is anything else out there that is better. My max budget is $150, but I would prefer to stay near $100 if I can. The headphones need to be able to withstand moving around a lot as I wear my headphones while walking around and on the bus, and I store them in my backpack a lot. Minimal Audio leakage (is that the right term?) would be nice, so I can wear them in a quiet room. I mostly listen to indie (like St. Vincent or Spoon), rock (like Arctic Monkeys or Sleater-Kinney), electronic, and rap/hip-hop. Also, I do not really care about bulkiness that much as long as they don't put too much pressure on my head, but ear cushion comfort is important (soft/pleather ear cushions).
Update: I now have some specific models in mind, but I have no idea how to choose. I'm looking at Denon DN-HP700, Shure SRH440, AKG K240 (and AKG K240 MKII), Sony MDR-7510, Audio-Technica ATH-M50, and Sennheiser - HD360 Pro. If there is something better that is not on my list, let me know.
