Sennheiser HD-590s, or virtually any of the Sennheiser HD series.
They're very comfortable, have long cords, and several are open-design so they're great for wearing in an office environment where you still need to be able to hear the phone ring or someone talking to you.

Wrong. The only worthwhile Sennheiser HD phones are the HD580, 600, and 650. You WILL be disappointed with the others considering their price.

Another SR-80 vote over here, but in the $100 range you might want to also check out the Sony V6 (or V7506, same thing). There are a lot of good headphones in this price range. You might want to ask around in Head-Fi.org.

That was true a few years ago, but not anymore.
