Well, we wouldn't recommend Beats because they aren't good headphones. I wouldn't recommend the Sony V700s either, because like the Beats headphones, they are fairly inaccurate and are far from a flat frequency response curve. At your price point you are probably going to be looking at some Sennheiser 280s, Sony MDR V6s, Shure SRH440s or something by Grado. Opinions here will vary on which of those are the best sub-$200 pair. Personally I like the Sony V6s.
Just read a bunch of reviews of the Shure SRH440s on Amazon and they sound like the best bang for your buck. At around $90 bucks it sounds like I can't go wrong. I think I'll try these out.
