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?
Thanks

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.
