I'm interested in getting a good set of headphones that are comfortable and well-isolating, maybe not to the point of not hearing the person next to you, but enough that you don't really hear much of the outside world. Furthermore, I'd prefer them to be very comfortable even after long listening periods. I like the around the ear style of the Bose noise-cancelling headphones (I've borrowed them once or twice before), but not so much the price point, and it was a little uncomfortable to wear for extended periods. Perhaps a more cushion-y (but still isolating) set like those Bose headphones would suffice. I would be listening on a somewhat noisy bus, a plane, or at home, and I listen to almost every genre of music out there, so it'd ideally be adapted to lots of different songs.
