Pretty much what the title says. I've no interest in carrying a pair of headphones around with me when I'm on the go but I'd still like something that sounds good and isolates well. My primary source of mobile music these days is Pandora and MOG (MOG is apt to be replaced by Spotify when it becomes available in the states) so it's not like I'm carrying a collection of lossless music in my pocket (I believe MOG uses 320kbps MP3s). My current phone is an HTC Desire but that's a pretty moot point since it's due for an upgrade in less than a year. They'll be amped by an E5 and that's not likely to change anytime soon unless someone comes out with a better portable amp that's just as small and unobtrusive.
 
Any suggestions?

Well some suggestions are HiFIMan 262, Radius DDM, Vsonic GR07, Sony EX600, Fisher Audio DBA02, at 150$. You can search here for reviews and find which of them suits you.
