Looking for new budget headphones....?

I bought a JVC HA-S700 2 years ago and the wire finally died on me. I loved them. Bought them for 30 bucks or so at the time.

Now I'm shopping for new headphones similar to those, but I don't want the same headphones again.

I liked the fact that they were very flexible (folded in for travel, etc) and blocked out outside noise (but not to an extreme point where I couldn't hear if someone was trying to get my attention several feet from me.

I bought a pair of Sennheiser HD 202's and don't like them. Random super long cord with gigantic piece of plastic where you are meant to wrap the excess wire, very rigid design; cant really put it in my backpack without probably breaking them, and the ear cups barely fit my ears and the earpads feel rough (though I guess that may change when I break it in.

Help? $30 price range only please.

    You must compromise with size and quality, sorry. Sennheiser IS the most affordable quality brand anyway, so look for their smaller products such as PX100-II or PX200-II for example.

    If actual high quality is a controversy, please choose for respected manufacturers purely alongside with B&W, Sennheiser (maximum much less high priced), Shure, Grado, Denon, AKG, Audio-Technica, Etymotic or Beyerdynamic. issues like Klipsch, Sony, Panasonic, JVC and Philips are purely "ok-ish".

    I have a pair of Meelectronics earbuds. I like them very much.
