Headphones: durable, closed, comfortable under $120

I need 2 pairs of headphones for broadcast type work. They need to fill these requirements:

Closed. Gotta be closed to I don't get any leakage. Or do any of you go with semi-closeds for broadcast type stuff? They're not as hot as closed's so it would nice if I could do that without leakage into the mic.

Comfortable. I wear thick-rimmed glasses and a huge head so I have had a lot of problems with cans clamping too hard over my head and giving me a.) a headache and b.) pains where my glasses sit. So I gotta find a pair with a fairly loose fit and thick pads that can "swallow" my glasses. My Denon ADH2000 are great in this respect but I can't afford a pair of those because they're 600 dollars over here. I'm thinking something around 100-120 a piece. Plus the cord is really thick and stiff which I don't really like.

Durable. They need to be really durable and heavy duty. Stuff happens you know.
