I'm looking to buy headphones for my wife for the holidays based on her rather specific preferences. I have both Audio Techinca ATH-m50s and Shure SE425s and she doesn't love either of them. She is uncomfortable with in-ear headphones, which rules out the Shures. And while she likes using the Audio Technicas, she doesn't want to carry a pair that "large and heavy" for air travel. I'm hoping for a pair of on or over-ear headphones under $200 that are suitable for air travel. I've looked at the Sennheiser PX200-IIs but am not certain how they'd perform on an airplane, given their limited sound isolation. Any recommendations greatly appreciated!
