I want a pair of closed, comfortable headphones that cost less than $150. If you have a VERY good reason to increase my budget then I might put some extra money from my savings to cover it. Since I travel a lot the comfort is a big thing. I always have a backpack of some sort wherever I am going to be taking these headphones, so being super portable isn't that big of a deal, however, it shouldn't be massive either. I don't plan on buying an amp, so don't recommend headphones that need one. I mostly listen to electronic music and some pop, so I appreciate bass. I also like watching movies, so headphones that are decent for that would be good. However, 90% of the time I will be using these headphones will be for gaming hence the good soundstage.

What I want for my headphones:
Comfort
Audio quality
Close back
Able to work on mobile phones
Good Bass
Good soundstage (I know it won't be the best because they are closed, but it should still be good in comparison to other closed headphones)

32 or 80ohm Beyerdynamic DT770. Both of them have a good amount of bass but the 80 ohm version has more. The soundstage is pretty good for a closed can and the velour pads are more comfortable than pleather.

I saw some sale for ~$160 about 3 days ago.

You can check out these audio technica headphones, I have a pair and they are more on the bassier side especially if you use an equalizer.

Like the other guy said, the Beyerdynamic's are a solid choice too. I think you should go with the 250 ohm as they are a lot cheaper than the other two versions.

the only problem with getting the 250ohm is whether it will work on a phone

where did you find it on sale? I was actually thinking of ordering the 80 ohm version from amazon uk as they are only $110 instead of $230. I know that there are import tariffs, and there is a higher shipping cost, but this souldn't add more than $30 to the price; definitely not more than $50

I wouldn't recommend the Audiotechnica M50's for comfort though, the earpads are thinner than many on-ear headphones and bruises your ears if they aren't small. I saw the sale at adorama in ebay.
