Headphones for outdoor use

Hi, I'm looking for headphones for outdoor use.
I have studio headphones (beyerdynamic dt 880) which I use in the studio.
They are semi open and too big for outdoor use.
I would also like to use it when I record guitars or vocals, so it should be closed.

so..
1. my budget is 50-150$
2. closed so sound won't leak
3. not too big (can be folded)
4. not in-ear

Thanks

You sure you want headphones, not earplugs?

Fair enough. I know some folk who come up to me and fire up a conversation when I am studying with my earplugs on. Annoys the living hell out of me.

If you want headphones, I can recommend Sennheiser HD25. I used them for DJing quite a lot, and they are kinda "industry standard". They are closed and very lightweight. And as far as I recall, you can fold them quite nicely.

I would not use them on mixing tho. For mixing I use Audio Technica ATH-M50 or M50X. They are absolutely amazing, and cost is around 150 euros/dollars.
EDIT: While they are really good, they are more heavy than Sennheiser HD25 and I would not use them outdoors. They can be folded, but they are still kinda big.
