Sorry for the late reply. I haven't chosen a pair of headphones yet. Here are some that I'm considering:
Senheisser HD 428
Senheisser HD 515
Also, I have lowered my budget a bit to around $70.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm sure most will disagree with me, but I think you should wait until you can afford to spend the $100 or a bit more on a decent set of headphones that will last you longer and that you'll get more enjoyment out of. While I do like the Sony MDR-V6 I know, from experience, that the cushions will wear out after a year or so and start to split. They sound good but are not the most durable.
I currently have the Sennheisser HD595 (which are a cousin of the 515). They've been a good all-around headphone. Quite balanced. Not in your stated budget but the HD 515 are probably decent.
