I don't know really anything about this headphone other than the fact I do like the manufacturer based on my experience with the ATH AD700, though that doesn't mean other headphones in their product line will be good because they all have varying sound signatures. I can't seem to find any measurements on this headphone but they seem to be marketed toward the DJ crowd. The Shure 440 and the Sony 7506/V6 to me are a safer choice.

Headroom seems to like the 440 for your application in this $100 price range.

Good stuff. The 440's are nice cans for the price especially for a closed model. Over the holidays I did some listening with the 440's with some open style headphones in similar price brackets as the 440. The Shure 440's are in the middle.

So how do you like them? I'm kind of scared now, since you have not commented on them.

So... any recommendations on IEMs, preferably <$150? My main concern with them is how they would fit in my ears and how hard they are to install and remove, as it were.

I have a set of Sennheiser CX 300s and really like them. They are not true iems but they do sound good and isolate fairly well.

One thing I hadn't considered before poking around Audioholics is the cord banging. Has that been a problem for you?
