Till recently I had Sennheiser HD212 and it is with them that I realized how much I actually like good sound and good headphones.
Since my dad loves them also, I gave these to him and I'm now in the market for new headphones. The problem is that I am not sure whether I need noise cancelling headphones or not. If there's active noise cancelling, does the sound quality suffer?
For example, how does Bose QuietComfort 15 compare to Senn HD-212 ?
My price limit is $300, if there's anything else you would recommend (please no earbuds, just around-the-ear) noise cancelling or not, I'd appreciate it.
EDIT: A thing to note: I just moved to Minneapolis and by the looks of it, I'll be using public transit a lot. So noise cancelling might not be a bad idea after all? I also travel twice a year to Europe and back.
