Best portable headphones for music and gaming?

    Hello everyone. New here, was looking for a new pair of headphones and was directed here so was lurking the past couple days. Anyway, I am in need of some new headphones that are portable, can be driven by an iphone 3gs, ipad 3, as well as used on my pc for gaming. I mostly listen to classic rock, some metal, and a little bit of everything else, minus rap/hip hop. Having phones that are good with all genres is a plus. I do intend to bring them out and use them in public (school, etc) so isolation in the form of not letting sound out is important, I don't care about letting outside sound in. Lastly, I hope to keep them under $200, closer to around 150 or so used. Thanks in advance for any recommendations. [​IMG]

    Sony MDR-V6, $65
    Also get the Beyerdynamic EDT200/250 V Velour ear pads ($23), makes the MDR-V6 very comfortable.
    If you do not have a sound card in your PC, get the Asus Xonar DG or DGX sound card.
    Comes with a half-way decent headphone amplifier and Dolby Headphone 5.1 surround sound
     
    A refurb Creative X-Fi Titanium (non-HD) $45, is a good gaming card.
    CMSS-3D headphone surround sound, but not headphone amp.
