Budget - ~$300
Source - Macbook, iPod (mainly), iPad
Requirements for Isolation - I do travel quite a bit and spend time in places like my college library
Preferred Type of Headphone - Big dude, looking for something comfortable in an over ear type of headphone.

Past headphones - POS cheapo earbuds
Preferred Music - Country, Rock, Rap, Dubstep
Basically I have tried reading through a lot of these forms to find someone who is looking for the same thing I am. Found some information but nothing concrete. Ive seen a lot of M50 suggestions for and against. Also a lot of HD598. As far as size and feel (not quality) i do like the feel of the Beats Pro and the Sony X10s that are common among the choices at best buy. I know these are not the best quality by any means.
Most likely my next job will require a lot of travel so noise reduction and isolation is a big plus for me. Also am looking for something that runs big as I am a big guy. Other than that I am open to suggestions and looking to learn.
What kind of sound signature are you after?
Know that, like most open cans, the HD 598 leaks sound and does not isolate well.
