I am taking a 10 day trip across the country. I definimtely will need headphones on the plane and also for use on a 2 hour bus ride between NYC and Philly. Other than that, I may use headphones in NYC but probably not that often since I will usually be with a friend (and don't want to be rude). Without buying a new set, what would you recommend I bring? I know it's personal preference but I am curious what considerations you guys take when you travel. For example, I have Bose Quiet Comfort NC's. I will probably take them for the flight but I really don't like how big and bulky it is and how much space the case takes up in my backpack. I also doubt I'd wear QC's around the city or in an urban environment.
I will have a portable amp and will be using my phone/Zune HD/iPod/Laptop as sources. You can look at my profile to see my cans.
