For $100 I would probably go for a pair of ATH-M50's. But probably best to go for something a little better and preferably open if you want a more natural sound.

Isn't this a common problem for headphones?
Just seen this - I am too late maybe.The classic version of the DT770 has 250 Ohms. Pro Audio Gear or your home stereo will have no problem in driving them. The downside of the high impedance is that the will need more power for the same sound pressure level.
They will also work on an iPhone but your battery will be drained a bit faster.
regarding sub freqs, that's always going to be a problem with headphones, regardless of what the marketing blurb may claim - one useful tip I've used over the years in bad monitoring environments (untreated), is to very very gently rest my finger on the edge of the driver/speaker (of a monitor, not headphones), to feel what the sub is doing; after all, you don't really hear 20hz anyway, you feel it ...its not perfect, but its better than trying to mix sub/low-bass by ear in an untreated room (aggh lol)
