Ok, so I am looking for a closed over ear phone. But my problem is, that $300 seems to be where alot of phones call home. Ive looked at the VMODA M100, SONY MDR-1, Mad Dogs,AKG Tiestos, Sennhesier Momentums, Denon, Beyer, ....... the list jsut keeps going on and on! I listen to dubstep, acoustic, electronic and 60's oldies and stuff in between. So what is the overall winner? This is a very important decision for me considering after this purchase I will not be getting another phone in a while : P

And is it for pubic or private listening?

It's too early in the life of both the SONY MDR-1, and assorted AKG Tiestos to make any good assumptions about them.
 
Vmoda m100 is probably the best bet for you. Innerfidelity has it as his top recommended sealed headphone, so you can't go wrong. (he's reviewed probably at least over $10,000 worth of headphones) 
 
Hope this helps.
 
Sennhesier Momentums seem very promising too. 
 
In all honesty, i don't think you can go wrong with either one in sound quality and the overall determining factor being style. Believe it or not, if you buy the one that you think looks better you'll probably perceive it as sounding better. Placebo effect at its finest :].
