I'm looking for a decent pair of headphones around $100 or less for listening to music. Not looking for flat monitor/mixing type headphones. I need nice bass but not Dre type bass. Basically I'm looking to kick it up a notch from my Koss portapro's, which I love but one of the earpads keeps falling off.

Noontec Zoro Hd seem to be popular for a well balanced sound ? I have some SOL Republic tracks and they are hyped in the bass a little to much .

+1 to the Sennheiser 280s; while you might find a few sets that equal them (in the same price range), you won't find better. Buy with confidence.

I had the 280 Pros and frankly I didn't care for them at all. I found the lack of bass shocking. Maybe I didn't give them enough time to burn in. Again, I'm not looking for flat monitor type headphones.

So far, Cnet's reviews have been working for me http://reviews.cnet.com/best-budget-headphones/ you can browse other ones by the sidebar (I personally really like the YUIN chinese earbuds (not listed there), because they are not in-ear, can be cheaply bought over the internet and sound amazing). There are also many good reviews at head-fi.org's forums

I like my audio technicas! Ive slowly upgraded models, but I believe the ath m50s go for around 100 dollars. Great sound quality a little extra low end, but once understand some rough mixing can be done for sure! Ive stuck with the audio technicas and the build quality holds up really well.

Don't Koss promise to provide you with free replacement pads throughout the lifetime of the product? I seem to remember some ludicrous promise like that. Anyway, they sell brand replacement pads (suggesting that free replacement pads is a fantasy) which fit perfectly. No-brand replacements may not fit. I'd stick with the Portapros for listening on the move. Solid build, decent sound and so cheap you won't feel particularly bad if someone steals them or you have some sort of accident.

Superlux 668b's

These guys make drivers for high end headphone makers.

But these cost about £30 and sound like £100+

http://www.head-fi.org/products/superlux-hd-668-b

Head fi concluded;

Pros:
“Neutral, revealing, precise, lightweight, sturdy, cable features”
“dynamic, deep bass, relatively balanced, analytical, good soundstage, very inexpensive”

Cons:
“Strong clamping force (gets better with time)”
“slightly recessed lower mids”

I had Grado SR60s for a long while. Great sound, highly user-repairable, though the spinning ear design encourages too much cable twisting and causes a need for user repair. I've since upgraded to Sennheiser 595s.
