can anyone recommend sub $200 headphones for the wife ?

she thinks the ATs are uncomfortable.

she doesn't like earbuds. she is also petite if that matters

I guess it would mostly revolve around AV multimedia vs. strictly audio.

Senn HD218 (open, lightweight)   Senn HD280  (closed)
Grado SR-60 or SR-80  Similar but the 80 has more bass, both great on transients and vocals

Neither will set you back much, both sound good but very different
Neither have ever left me fatigued
Both are easy to drive

...doesn't like AKGs !   I guess someone has to .....
