Hello!

Never get to try any of those that you listed but the HD439 SHOULD sound better in comparison but I could be wrong. If you allow on-ear in the game, UE4000 is one of my favorite under $100 headphone!

Billson :D

The PX 200 II sound very very nice, but provide no isolation.  So I don't think you'd like them on the bus or other noisy environments.
 
I have the HD439, mentioned above and they give medium to good isolation (not as good as my ATH M50s for example) and are exceedingly comfortable on my ears.  
 
I thought the top end to be a bit rolled off at first, but has opened up with use.  I think the mids are quite well integrated with the bass, and the bass is entirely sufficient for my listening.  For a closed headphone, they give a fairly good spatial image (much better than the M50's for example).
 
I did listen to the HD 429 at the store, but set up was far from ideal.  Maybe more clarity -- but rather suspect that they just didn't have same level of mid and low bass.  Guessing.
