I want a pair of over ears that are good looking so I can wear them in public. They have to have good bass and good sound overall. My price limit is 200.

I like the Sennheisers how about the PX-200 - I know its well under your budget, but that's not a bad thing

Or a little more retro
Listed in order of price low to high, but you'll need 3.5mm adapter (around $5).

If you stretch your budget you can get them from apple for $299, or take the risky avenue on Ebay for:

Keep in mind that when selecting headphones the impedance matters phones over 80 ohms tend to need amplification and phones under 15 ohms may introduce noise or you will notice the noise floor a good place to learn more would be head-fi.org. I will second louishen's suggestion on the Sennhiser's either PX-100 or Px-200 they are very hard to beat for the money.
