    Hey guys 
    I've posted this in the recommendations thread, but got nor responses.
    Anyways I'm looking for a headphone and amp combo for around $300
    I need ,closed cans because I often work in quiet places such as the library.
    I therefore also need a portable amp, and preferably not bulky/heavy headphones.
    I listen to a mix of classical, orchestral/movie soundtracks, and some rock/alternative.
    I will be using either an iPhone or my pc as a source.
    Any suggestions?

    JVC HA-S500-Z (Gun metal Gray) folding headphones, $76.99, your iPhone can easily drive them.
    Asus Xonar DG sound card, $26, should improve the audio quality over your motherboard's built in audio.

    Unfortunately, I have an itx pc and do not have space for an internal sound card.
    I was thinking of something like the fiio e7 so that I can use it with my iPhone as well as my pc.

    The new Fiio E07K sells for $89.
