Yeah, knock Bose right off your list there. I'd even go as far as to say Monster headphones are better than Bose. And please, please don't buy Monster headphones either.
Major headphone makers that have a variety of different styles and sounds in various price ranges are:
If you want a decent Noise Canceling headphone, you will generally have to put up with a bit of interference (white noise) at some level. Bose are particularly bad in this regard.
Sony, Sennheiser, and Audio Technica make decent Noise Cancelling sets, from what I hear. Can't say there are any Sony headphones I'd recommend normally though.
My understanding is that the Beyer you've listed is really tricky to get decent sound out of... very tempremental seal. The Sennheiser is totally awesome though. I'd go with that if that between those two.
Do listen to a well burned in Bowers & Wilkins P5 though, if you can. Personally, I use the P5 as my "quiet time" headphone. With a decent seal, it blocks a very large percentage of ambient noise. The sound quality is either nothing to write home about, or totally awesome... depending on who you talk to. YMMV. Incredible build quality too.
