    Sennheiser IE8 should fit your bill. Also SE530 pretty good, people saying they maybe are a bit receded in the highs freqs. I have never heard them myself btw.

    Well if you don't mind go the custom way, you can find a T1 here.
    Just I don't know how much bass they would give you. but they still below your million. :D

    ultrasone edition 9, if you can find one?

    lots of other amazing ones, but make sure you have a good headphone amplifier, they can cost as much as the headphones themselves if you want good ones but they truly add to the listening experience and most high-end headphones dont sound too good without a decent amp, cos if the headphones have high impedance as with lots of expensive headphones, then it will need lots of electricity to power it well. (edit: There are portable amps you can get, check FiiO E5 as an example, but they dont work as well)

    Also, If you're using your iPod touch for most listening then make sure the songs are encoded well, like with a lossless format (e.g. FLAC is one lossless format but not sure it works in iPod touch), if you compress to MP3 it loses alot of detail in the songs which will mean you are not getting full potential out of your music and headphones. Your itouch is 64gb so size shouldn't be a big problem, depending on how much music you listen to...

    Just telling you this so that you know you'll have to spend more money on an amp if you are getting expensive headphones, if you dont already have an amp.

    Amazing headphones

    If you're looking the for the best headphones available then my current personal favourite is the Beyerdynamic Tesla T1.

    The balance with the T1 is absolutely spot on in my opinion, with enough power at the bottom end and superb levels of detail resolution. I really love the industrial design, ultra-comfortable ear pads and robust construction.
