Best Headphones for classical music in a noisy environment?

jackneeson
Hello,

Well, a few of my friends were decrying the huge amount of noise one encounters on a typical NYC commmute, and the impossibility of listening to classical music on the subway because of the noise. We all agreed that it would be worth a few hundred dollars for headphones that would block the noise.. so here i am:What are the best classical music headphones, that can be driven acceptably by an iPod, that block a lot of noise?Etymotic ER-4P? Shure E3C? Koss Plugs? (heh) Bose QC2? (The budget is around $200 or less.BTW, i've tried using my Sony V6 cans and their noise-blocking ability is no match for the roaring, squealing, rattling NYC subway system, just in case someone was going to suggest just using big closed cans..


Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
