Just pick which pair of headphones you think best match the conditions below...
At least somewhat aesthetically pleasing
  • Excellent sound quality (will make good use of an Asus Xonar Essence STX)
  • Comfortable (you can wear them for hours)
  • Noise Cancelation (can't hear this damn kid bouncing a golf ball in the apartment above me)
  • Good for Valve Online FPS + Starcraft 2
  • 3D effects
  • Good for Alternative Rock + Rock (Mainly just the Red Hot Chili Peppers)
  • Good bang for the buck

I would check out the Denon AH-D1001 at this price range; they are great for rock.
