sony mh1c gets lots of mention lately. i dont know personally.

i keep trying different sets that i read about and im not totally happy with any set that i have right now. so my best advice is to maybe start out at $30-50. one thing ive found out is that $100 does not guarantee quality of any sort.

there's plenty of $20-50 phones that beat lots of $100 phones in everything. so basically be thorough in your research.

Klipsch Image X10, price on Amazon right now is $107.76, barely over your max, but it tends to bounce around. I got mine for $90 but thats the non-remote version. 
 
If not the Logitech UE500/600i can be had for under $100 both have the remote.

I'd say either the Klipsch X10 or the Sony MH1C are good choices but if you spend just $20 more you can get either the Rockit R-50 or the Hifiman RE262 which are both a bit better than the other 2 imo.
