HI I'm looking for a new set of headphones in the $80-$130 range to replace my Sennheiser HD-280s I'm looking for something a little more durable seeing as I would have to travel with them as well, I like a little more treble but nothing too crazy and if thats not possible would like to go for a more flat response than anything. Closed back and sound isolation are pretty important. I was looking at the Audio-Technica ATH-M40x or the AKG k271 MKII, but I am open to any suggestions, Thanks!

The ath m40x is very bulky on the head so it's not the best for portable use

Try Beyerdynamic's custom one pro if you don't mind bulky

These are not very portable because of their size, but the Brainwavz HM5 and Fishcer FA-003 are considered fairly neutral headphones:

These are actually the same headphone. One manufacturer makes the same cups and drivers, and then they are rebranded. Right now, you can get the NVX XPT100 version of these phones for $80 on Amazon.
