I am looking to buy an over the ear or on the ear headphone. Price range is flexible (preferably under $300). Characteristics I want-
1) Lightweight
2) Comfortable to wear long hours
3) Rumbling bass
4) Good sound detail

Characteristics I don't want/need-
1) Noise cancellation
2) Sound isolation
3) Punchy bass
4) Sibilance

So far I've found the following suitable models:
German Maestro GMP 8.35 D
Sony mdr-ma900
Sennheiser HD239

Please let me know of any better options, or your thoughts about the above three options.
