Default Headphones for daily use

Some suggestions please, on a budget so max $85-$90 would be great.

Thanks

Im getting the Sennheiser HD 215 they should be here early or late next week ordered it from an online retailer called Axe Music its a closed set with tax and shipping came up to under 100 dollars so if you can wait i can tell yea how that is? Seems to be around yer budget to i spent 96 dollars exactly i live in Ontario.

My last pair was the Sony MDR-V700 Dj headphones they only lasted me 6 months but they served its purpose i mix a lot and it was easy to use but quality of the parts when i took it apart is hideous really cheaply made wiring to be specific i lost sound on the right side but if i tilted my head a certain way i got sound it got annoying so i took it apart and well i couldnt put it back together again so now i basically got a one ear functional headphone so time for a new one. The Headphone still sells for 200 which i think is wayy too overpriced, luckily i did not pay anywhere near that.

So thought id go for a higher quality headphones under 100 bucks and choose these Sennheisers, looking thru reviews they have the features i desire and are dj friendly and they say its very comfortable to wear for long periods so hopefully it is as the Sony's hurt after 3-4 hours.

I'm doubtful you'd be able to get active noise canceling for your budget. You could try google for passive noise cancelling headphones and wander around for a while. Nothing especially promising showed up after a brief look for me though.
