Hi
 
I am a regular computer user. I have a sound blaster x-fi titanium HD sound card . I need advice on getting best optimal sound over the ear headphones. I am not very interested in bass or treble sounds . just general music listening, movies and english voice listening. Also I need closed or semi open style headphones with volume control  to not sound loud or noisy to other people in my room. What would be your advice ? My budget would be around $100. I currently use philips shp 2500 and need better ones. Thanks in advance

AKG K271 - closed and slightly over budget
AKG K241 - semi open fairly neutral 'polite' sound
Audio Technica M50 - closed and a bit bassy
Sony MDR-V6 - closed and neutral sound
and maybe - Sony XB500 - closed, very bassy (but not bad bass - good for action movies) but very comfy for unlimited hours of wearing
 
None of these have a volume control, but are all good value.
