Hi everyone. I have finally decided to treat myself to a quality set of headphones. I have been doing quite a bit of reading lately which has lead me to the Bose QC15. I also read great things about Audio Technica's ATH-M50. I realize they aren't noise cancelling so have also been looking at AT's ATH-ANC7B as a comparison to the QC15s but am not sure how Audio Technica's noise cancelling compare. They have quite a variety of NC models to choose from.
A little background on me is I am a commercial pilot who travels quite a bit. I've used noise cancelling aviation headsets from Bose and David Clark and can certainly appreciate the difference they make, especially in some of the planes I fly. The type of music I listen to is rock/alternative.
I have to admit that seeing Monster's DNA headphones on sale for $100 at Best Buy is what prompted this whole new headphone search. It didn't take long for me to realize that I didn't want to buy the DNAs or any Monster or Beats headphones I tried. I have also been considering Sennheiser and welcome any input on other brands or ones I have mentioned above. The huge choice is a bit overwhelming but I keep coming back to Bose. Thanks for any replies. Cheers :)
