hi, what type of headphones are you looking for ? do you want to isolate the sound ? if so, just go for a closed back headphone. if you don't care about the sound leakage and want more natural experience, just go for an open back option. what is your sound card btw?

 

--Open Back--

beyerdynamic DT 990pro

Sennheiser hd558/hd598

Philips Fidelio X1

 

--Closed Back--

Sound Magic HP100

beyerdynamic DT 770pro

I watch a lot of movies late at night on my laptop
Using atm50's though a fiio e7 DAC
Its a huge improvement over the built-in sound
And the pair fits your budget nicely depending on the
Quality of your pc's soundcard this could be a great setup
The closed back design gives a very detailed experience
And for me a great starting point

I agree. Open headphones have a bigger soundstage than closed headphones, which can create a better immersion experience for movie watching and would be my first choice. But they do leak some sound and they don't isolate you from what's going on around you in the room.

And we need the make and model of your soundcard to see if it has a headphone amp.

I dont have any personal experience about open and close back, but i suppose from that you have wrote the open are better. I also dont have problem with leak sound or non full isolation, because my room have not any noise and the closest person is on the next room.
My sound card is Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum.

if you can get the Fidelio X1, then you can't ask for better in that price range. great all-rounder for music too.
