Here for the gear

Recommend me an interface

Here is what I need:

2x mic inputs
2x headpone outputs with seperate volume
Must be external, will be used with laptop and stationary computer

Small or 19" rack spaced, USB or Firewire, doesn't matter. Price must be under @500, preferrably below $300.

Got suggestions?

As far as I know, you'll need a headphone amp.

I can't think of anything to fit your description perfectly, but heres one thats at least close.

(I can't think of any interface in your budget that allows for two different headphone mixes)

Duet 1 or 2 (I say two) is listed at $595 brand new, has 2 Mic Ins, 2 Line Ins, 2 Outputs (but they are a left and right, not headphone 1 and 2), and a 1/4" Headphone slot out of the front.

Although it does split your signal, you could run an adaptor out of the 1/4" to plug two headphones into (this is what Ive done in the past).

Apogee is WELL REGARDED for their A/D/A conversion and the Pre's are very clean and nice sounding.

Although beware its not very "External gear" friendly

And its very portable.

With this budget I can recommend M-Audio Fast Track Ultra.

im happy with my saffire pro 24. two headphone outs is unusual - you could couple it with a headphone amp and meet your requirements under budget.
