Hi, sorry if there's a dedicated thread for this. I just wanna ask Head-Fi's opinion on the best cans(portable or not) at this price range. Would prefer something with great isolation. I read a lot of reviews, but am not accustomed to terminologies, and they don't seem to translate well. Musical preferences:
 
1) Rock - The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Simon and Garfunkel, Evanescence, some Led Zeppelin.
2) Orchestra
3) Classical Music - Most notably piano and cello.
4) Vocal-centric - Emi Fujita, Lady Antebellum, Rebecca Pidgeon, some opera.
 
I'll be purchasing a J3 16 GB as well, so if your suggestion isn't portable, that money could go to amp/(DAC/amp) (I seriously have no idea about these stuffs). Currently I am eyeing TMA-1 and HD-25 1 ii because of the looks, but have no idea how they sound.
 
Thanks in advance!

Fisher Audio has great cans in your price range.
There are several models like FA004, FA003 or FA002
Some isolate better then other but as far as I recall, FA003 is the closed type.
