Are there any Noise Canceling Headphones in the Sub-$150 Dollar Range which are better than the Bose QC3 and QC15?
 
I don't think spending $300+ for solely noise-canceling is worth the investment.  
 
Please let me know your recommendations.  Thanks

I'm with superjawes.  Noise canceling is complicated circuitry and really only effective for consistent noise - like engines..  Using them in a private plane is important as you can still communicate and not drive yourself crazy with engine/wind noise.
 
Also, as superjawes said, if you want isolation, consider an in ear device (http://www.head-fi.org/a/basic-guide-to-in-ear-canalphones).  You'll get a quieter experience and probably better audio quality for < $150.  I've been wanting a set of RE-400's pretty bad.  At only $100 they look like the best option going.
