This is purely for use in my car and for air travel. Basically I want enough noise cancelling that I don't have to up the volume significantly when driving but not so much that I'm totally oblivious to the outside world. I won't be listening to music at all so that's not a factor, only not-completely-terrible sound quality is needed.

I realize that wearing headphones while driving is legal in some areas, I can't help but think it's not a great idea...maybe that's just me being old, though. Much better would be to get an aux cable or bluetooth radio in the car and play audiobooks that way.

Otherwise I would probably suggest some IEMs over earbuds. Better insertion would be better isolation and therefore lower overall volumes.
