Headphone Recommendations

Since my second pair of Klipsch S4's are on their last legs, I'm looking for a new seat of headphones. I've really enjoyed Klipsch, but their durability really hasn't been what I like.

Ideally, I'm looking for a set of over-ear or in-ear headphones with good isolation and low noise pollution above most all else. They will be for normal usage with my iPod/iPhone, so the cord can't be obscenely long or require an amp. I'm also a bit of a bass head, so the more the better for the most part. I'm gonna keep my budget below $300 for this as well.

im not an audiophile, but i did hear some buzz a while back about the vsonic gr07. Might be worth looking into.

I have a pair of V-MODA Crossfade LP2s. I find that they are plenty durable with the steel band, kevlar reinforced cable, and whatnot. They also have a good amount of bass. Nothing super crazy, but still a good amount. The bass doesn't drown out other sounds. The noise isolation is good and the noise pollution is minimal. The warranty is also pretty good.

I really like the look of the V-MODA LP2's. That's really looking like my next headphone choice unless something changes my mind.

Edit: I REALLY like the idea of a set of headphones that I can't kill, so I'm probably about to order a set. It'll be cool engraving the face plates for free too.

Mine have held up through a couple meetings with the floor. The plates are nice, if you want a different color you can just swap them out. Which reminds me, I should order a set of plates soon, I'm kinda tired of purple.

I ordered a pair of them, and had engravings done on the plates since it didn't cost anything extra. Really looking forward to a set of over-ear headphones since I've always used in-ear ones. I might also finally not have to worry about a frayed internal wire like I've done with almost every set of headphones I've owned at this point.

I had a set of original VModa LP's that I bought about 2.5 years ago. They were sweet, but I overpaid. And now gone, seeing as I hardly ever used them (prefer in-ears as I use them while mobile).
