I do a lot of traveling for my job and I'm considering investing in noise cancelling headphones for plane rides and also just to unwind with it at the end of the day. I checked other posts in the forum but some of my criteria is a bit different. What I hope to listen to about 60-70% of the time with noise cancelling headphones will be primarily, Classic Rock, Jazz, Acoustic, Classical, Blues (pretty much anything before the 80's). I'll reserve hip hop and Metal for my workouts- so I'm not looking for any bass heavy headphones.
If I could break up my preferences they would fall under
Sound Quality/Isolation - 70%
Not to big on aesthetics as I'm not trying to look fly and I understand there are opportunity costs when comfort and sound are two factors. I'm also not interested in any in ear buds and I'm not a big fan of Bose, Sony, Skull Candy, Monster, Soul....
I appreciate it if you guys can help me out on this one.
