The denon d2k would fit the bill except it is not a great at isolation. The perfect choice for you might be:
 
Beyer dt770...good bass and good isolation.

d2k are a bit fragile for travel, one drop and that cup is coming off the band.
while many may think it's overprice, the ath-m50 can be had online for ~$130, are built rugged, and will run fine without an amp from a portable player.

My suggestion would be the Beyerdynamic DT250s.
 
Not the most stylish set of cans but they offer reasonable isolation, great sound quality, average (but not exaggerated) bass and can be had second hand for under $200.00.

If you don't mind on ears, then you should start researching on the usual suspects:
Hd25 (there is a Adidas version which looks awesome to me)
Vmoda m80
Aiaiai tma-1
Ath esw9, es10
Beyerdynamic DT1350 (my choice)

There's also a portable headphone shootout from joker on this forum, which is a must read.
