I can easily disable the ANC on the Executives (or bypass the circuit altogether), so it's not a big problem for me.
I'd prefer something that's not open back, and not a gaming headset because those things are the complete opposite of portable. I hear that Tiësto's teamed up with AKG to make a DJ headphone, which is interesting, but if I were to go AKG, I'd stick with my K701s
The Velodynes look pretty awesome, but availability would be a problem. Them detachable parts tho!
How about Casio H1/2/3?
