    If you're going to be using this during transportation and in a public setting, then what you really want is a closed-back headphone.  This is so that you won't disturb others, and equally important, others won't disturb you.  Since this is the case, I'd forget about the PX 100-II and K420 right away.  The former is open, and the latter is semi-open.
     
    This leaves the PX 200-II which I've owned previously.  It's a competent headphone, but a little dark sounding.  Since you listen to rock and classical, I think that you'll probably want something with better highs and even a little air.  Given that, and your budget, I'd say that you might want to look at an AKG K518LE.  Amazon has them for as little as $50 right now.
     
    Couple of questions for you though...  Do you have a big head?  And do looks matter to you?

    I second warrenpchi that you'd want a closed-back pair of headphones for travel purposes.
     
    Are you after full-size or on-ears? Full-sizes are generally more bulky but offer greater isolation and comfort (IMO).
     
    I also find that (although you may not) the elastic headband design feature on most AKG full-sizes are quite uncomfortable not to mention odd-looking when you have them around your neck so you may want to consider that if you're going for the large AKGs.
