After a good 5-year run with my Bose QuietComfort2 headphones, an x-mas gift, they seem to have finally died for good. Nothing happens when I try to turn the power on on the side, and they were pretty beat up already (one side held together with electrical tape). I am thinking now would be a fine time to purchase a new pair.
I've been referred here, and I noticed that the consensus seems to be that as a brand Bose is overpriced.
I am wondering if anyone can suggest a good pair to buy?
I am looking for relatively discreet (i.e. not any more conspicuous than QuietComfort2), somewhat versatile phones (rock and abstract music, general use on laptop, movie editing, etc). I really did enjoy the noise-canceling feature - I can't count the number of times over the years that's helped me tolerate a difficult situation (would be a nice bonus if I could fall asleep in the phones without destroying them).
Price range is flexible. I'm certainly willing to pay for quality, but don't want to go overboard considering I am a 'general' user. I'd like at least the same quality as the QC2s.
