Hi, I am looking for some new headphones in the $80 to $150 range. I like to listen to Maroon 5 and Colplay mainly. I currently have the Bose AE2 and I love the way they feel, I tried the ATH-M50X and although the sound quality is amazing  they don't fit how I want them to. I like light around ear style headphones but I have been looking at some on ear like the V-MMODA M-100's, Samsung Level On, but they aren't right. Things that are a MUST is under $160, no heavy bass, not flimsy, Comfortable for hours of use, Closed back, Things I would like 90-Degree connector at end of cord, a brand i'm familiar with (Sennheiser, Bose, Sony, Audio Technica, V-MODA) If anyone could help me out I would love it. Thanks.

Well, I really like the Sony MDR-7506, even more than many much more expensive headphones. Only briefly heard the Sennheiser MOMENTUM (and the On-Ear), so I can't really say much about how it sounds. I own the V-MODA Crossfade LP and would not recommend it. Way too much bass quantity without the quality, and without the XL Memory Cushions, it's uncomfortable. I also only briefly auditioned the M-100, but I think it has the same fit. Those larger pads are a must. Not sure why you mentioned them, though, since they're ~$300 headphones, you don't want to buy used, and your budget is $150.

My roommate has wireless Samsung Bluetooth headphones, but I don't know which model they are.
 
  I also forgot to mention that ilike to fold 1 cup flat so i can only have 1 on at a time so i can her people better and i can wear headphgones longer

 
The Sony MDR-7506 can do that.
