Quite good, but isn't that out of your price range? Not quite as comfortable as the ATH Axxx sets or certain cans from AKG but they're not ear-and-skull-crushers like the M50. They're bassier than the cans suggested below. No idea how well they hold up over time though.
The A700 is still probably your best bet at 150 or under. A700x is usually a few bucks more - they're more different
than better, but seriously minor difference - so your call there. The ATH-A series is quite literally the most comfortable full size series that exists AFAIK. The entire series also has a HUGE soundstage (even the closed ones), and the closed ones do
have bass (not overblown like a lot of currently trending cans, but IMO that's a good
thing. The real downside is they are bulky (yet lightweight and comfortable - counter-intuitive, but its true) and are NOT designed to take a beating. Aside from the pleather rubbing off of the earpads (these are replaceable) after 2 years or so, they'll hold up just fine if treated well.
Now, I do believe I mentioned AKG. Their K701/702 is quite nice, although totally out of your price range. I haven't personally used their cheaper offerings, but I've heard good things (pun intended) about the k271 mk2. They are the closest things in terms of comfort to the Audio Technica Art series. Very nice audio for music, almost
as good for gaming, a bit cheaper, and more durable.
