Ok, so that rules out the Grado's, unfortunately that company has yet to develop an "around the ear" (circumaural) set of headphones.
I'd try the Sennheisers, they have a whole range of headphones within your budget:HD201HD205HD280
or the HD485That site is also good for people wanting to learn more about all kinds of headphones
, I know that your typical music player will be able to push decent sound through at least the HD280 at moderate volumes, so I don't think it will be a huge problem. Of course, for the best possible sound, you'll want an amp - but it doesn't sound like you are super serious about this stuff yet.
