Best Headphones for studying???

    I just got accepted into a graduate program and will be doing a lot of studying (preferably with headphones on), so I'm curious which ones would be best for me...
    The following features are important to me:
    - $125 max, but prefer more of an $80 pricetag
    - Good audio quality.  I listen mostly to electronica (trance and house music) and classical music.
    - Comfort.  I will be wearing them for multiple hours a day, and sore ears aren't any fun :p
    - Little to no sound bleeding... I will be studying around others and want to respect their ability to have silence...  I don't listen to music terribly loud, but not terribly quiet either :)
     
    Thanks for any suggestions!!!

    Up your budget. While there are good headphones at 80 bucks, 200 bucks will get you a huge jump in performance, comfort and durability.

    For about 80 bucks, I can recommend the AKG DJ518.

    Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000) closed headphones, around $85.

    Hello!
     
    First of all, HIGH-FIVE! I listen to music while studying as well :D
     
    For house musics, I can easily recommend the HD439 for your budget. In terms of isolation, it's pretty good and I tried turning it to half of the max volume [which is extremely loud to me] for a while, there wasn't much sound leaking out
     
    Hope this helps!
    Billson :D
