    Hi, im searching for some headphones within 80-100 dollars, i listen to metal, rock, hard rock, etc... 
    im not searching a bigh bass, and i dont usually listen to mp3 files.

    Do you have any preference when it comes to design (closed vs open back headphones?)

    as mentioned above, if you do not have any preferences, you might want to check the grado line of headphones mainly the sr-80 or the alessandro ms-1.
    for in-house music listening to relatively high quality recordings in the general genres of rock, the ms-1 would be one of my top picks.

    You are a prime candidate for Grado SR60i or SR80i.
    SR60i has slightly lighter bass - but also tighter. Sounds fabulous with fast metal.
    SR80i has slightly more bass presence and somewhat more aggressive highs, for $20 more.
    Also, pick up a pair of L-Cush pads for $20, it will improve either headphone by a large margin. Enjoy!

    Yeah Grado would be the typical recommendation for this. I eventually found mine to be far too fatiguing and painful to listen to, but they might work well for you as an entry model.

    I 2nd the MS1i recommendation. They were painful until after about 10-15 hours of burn in but beautiful after that.
