I have a pair of bose triports that are ready to get retired for my over ear headphones. I have a pair of shure se215's that I use a lot but I want a pair of over ears to have as well. I travel several times a year so I like something that I can use on the plane, or at home or with amplitube or stuff like that. I'd like to be under the $200 ish range. Noise cancellation would be great as well and comfort is a big thing because I'd wear them long stretches at a time.

Suggestions?

ATH-M50 or MDR-7510.
The bose's with the active noise reduction are fun, but the sound quality isn't really good for the price.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Noise canceling is a gimmick to justify high prices for cheap cans. Buy yourself set a set of bulky Sennheisers. The HD280s are under $100 and they’re incredible headphones at that price.

Audio Technica ATH-M50.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I have these and they are great. They reduce the noise enough that I can't even hear my two young kids playing loudly 5 feet away, and if you have kids you know that is a good test

I'm not with that.
In my experience, when the thing works it works gooood.
And I mean good, so good that popping the switch makes the thing go from a to z, from day to night, whatever.
It may not be useful in some situations, but in some other situations it's helpful and it's good to have a pair of headphones with an active noise reduction system that works.

Plus it's fun to try them at MediaWorld

Said that, I still have to hear a real good sounding pair of headphones with active noise reduction.

I'l have to thoroughy disagree with noise cancellation being a gimmick. Especially if your on a plain or somewhere that you just need the little extra to cut out some extra noise even if your not playing any music through the headphones. Aside from that, I just wanted to see what else was out there and what people would suggest.
