What are the best noise-canceling/sound isolating cans for a budget buyer, less than 250. I'm in college and my roommate likes to blast loud music so I want to get a pair of cans to get rid of the sound. I listen to all types of music.

Best Noise-Canceling/Sound Isolating Cans
Gear mentioned in this thread:
The AKG K271's isolate outside noise extremely well, but are a little lacking in bass, so they aren't all that great for rap and electronic and stuff. Otherwise, they are an excellent sounding pair of headphones.
The Sennheiser HD25's also isolate very well, and have more bass (But, to me, have a little weaker overall sound).
