I'm looking for a pair of closed back headphones to use on my way to work. Some important things to mention:
-I take the subway/bus so it's VERY important that the headphones isolate outside noise and also aren't too loud for those around me.
-I will be using them with my iPod WITHOUT an amp. I would also prefer if they didn't take batteries.
-I generally listen to classic rock (both the Led Zeppelin and Beatle variety), modern alternative rock (Black Keys, Chili Peppers etc.) and rap and hip-hop (mostly new stuff where it's important to hear the well produced track, a la Kanye).
-I'd like them to not look stupid.
-Preferably under $200.
-In terms of sound some adjectives that come to mind: immersive, rich, deep, clear, detailed.
Edit: after thinking it over I think that I prefer a fun sound to an analytical one. A sound where guitar riffs get you excited and rap beats make you bob your head.
