I've owned a pair of Sennheiser HD280s for around 4 years, and found them fantastic in every way except one: for long term listening, I found them very uncomfortable. Anyway they were recently stolen and I'm looking to buy another closed pair of cans for ~$100. I listen mainly to progressive rock and progressive metal on my computer. As of right now, I'm considering getting the Audio Technica ATH-M50's. Any recommendations would be great.

For under $100, I can't say that I've heard a better closed can than the JVC RX700s, but they are very low in stock right now.

The Denons would be my second bet - I've heard them and they sound pretty good, go for those.

another vote for the d1001. there are some on the fs/ft for significantly less than 100. and a simple markL mod and recabling job greatly increases their sq. i just had mine recabled by a fellow member and they sound much better.
