Portable, on-ear (supraaural) headphones up to 130 $

Somehow my previous thread on this topic has been deleted, thus I am forced to start a new one.

So, I am looking for a pair of good headphones in a reasonable price (like everyone) that have a nice but not overwhelming bass.

I've chosen some models, but I can't decide which one is the best one. Unfortunately I can't test them by myself in local stores (because their are simply unavailable around my location), except the Audio-Technicas and those I want check out tommorow.

So here they are:

Beyerdynamic DTX 501p, AIAIAI TMA-1 X, Audio-Technica ATH-WS55, Audio-Technica ATH-SJ55, AKG K451, Phillips Fidelio M1.

I shall be thankful for any suggestions, opinions.

PS. Device: iPod Nano, Nokia Lumia, laptop (with fidelizer and ASIO4ALL).

The DTX501p sounds good, the AIAIAI less so, the WS55 much less so, the M1 so dark that I couldn't use it. The others I don't know, but the new Soundmagic P21 is excellent.

Beyer DT1770/T70p, Grado PS1000e, Bose QC35, B&O H6, DragonFly1.2/DragonFly Black/Oppo HA2 DAC/amps, Lehmann Traveler amp.

Thank you for answers! V

Thank you for answers! V-Modas are far above my budget, they are priced at around 200$ everywhere. So it is gonna be DTX 501p or the new P21.

Apologies. I was looking at the price in pounds, not dollars.
