The Bowers and Wilkins P5 are rather slim.  Nice and warm sounding.

The JVC on ear with NC, Bose on ear, B&W P5, Pioneer on ear are recommended(slim and ultra portable).

I haven't tried any of these, but they look slim and (according to |joker|) isolate well

I have a pair of 1350's and they really are an amazing headphone for the size. I have travelled with them and they are great.

This thread is funny. No price range was suggested, and suddenly people are suggesting headphones that are $200 or more. Considering that 94% of US headphone sales in dollars were for headphones under $100, that probably translates to more than 98% of headphone units sold being under $100.

 

A question for the original poster. How much do you want to spend?
