I've got $200 to spend on headphones, and I haven't a clue about what to look for. So, as usual, I turn to Anandtech. Here's what I want (for use in a college dorm):

- Headphones that keep my music in
- and everything else out (doesn't have to be noise canceling, thick padding is good enough
if you do recommend noise canceling, they'd better be rechargeable, or have a toggle for the canceling
- wireless is a big plus (thinking Senn RS-85's or AKG K506 AFC)
- anything else cool


Note: these are mostly for use with my laptop playing MP3's, discman, and MP3 player. Budget is ~$200 as per title.

Thanks.

Sounds like you need some Audio Technica ATH-A900s!

If you're only going to use them indoors I would recommend the Audio-Technica ATH-A900 Art or it's cheaper brother the Audio-Technica ATH-A500 Art which can be bought from Audio Cubes. These are both very good, but quite large.

If you don't like those then consider these:
Beyerdynamic DT 250-80
Sennheiser HD 25
Sony MDR-D66SL Eggo
