If you want a sealed back, I've been very happy with my SoundMagic HP150. Very comfortable, great sound, neutral looking.

Edit: Looks like they have a new model out, HP151. Reviews on Amazon aren't great, but I've had no issues at all with mine - they've been very durable.

Could you buy her a gift certificate and let her choose?

Yes, that may be impersonal, but fit and comfort for the individual are as important as sound quality or other features, as Galu mentioned earlier.

Just a thought.

The Audio Technica ATH-M50x is also a standard recommendation in your price range. I tried them once and found them less comfortable than my hp150 due to less padding, but they are a solid headphone.

Hard to find 'phones that don't look too industrial.

What I think is stylish, my wife thinks is hideous!

Do they wear glasses or listen for long periods of time ?
Comfort is an issue for glasses wearers with the Grado mentioned earlier
I own the AT M50X mentioned and although they are very nice the "pleather" can get hot in summer .
The bass is accentuated a bit much on the AT 50X for me . YMMV

What source and amp is used for listening ?

Are you looking for closed-back headphones? They can be awfully big, but you'll probably get the best sound. Beyerdynamic makes some awesome models, but they can get pretty pricey.

I'm also a big fan of the Audio Technica M50x; they are much more affordable than the beyerdynamic pair, closer to your budget.
