what headphone thread - this must be the first post like this EVER (take two)

now ive always used in ear ones, as i used to think people using the big ones looked like dorks, but after a while of listening with in ear ones they start to hurt (ive got tiny ear apertures) and i just happened to try on a pair of bose quiet comfort 15's noise cancelling thingies while wasting time in john lewis....
i know bose is over priced hype, but jesus i couldnt believe the contrast in sound, and have to admit the sound produced from them far out performed any of my in ear ones. also the comfort of them was out of this world, felt like my head was being enveloped by a huge pair of fluffy boobs.
was almost tempted there and then to spank the 290 quid on a pair of them there and then, but then my sensible side kicked in and said to ask you gurus first
no doubt there are cheaper alternatives, oh and noise cancelling is a MUST!

I've never heard the "Beats" range, but the general consensus appears to be that they are not bad in themselves as 'phones, but no better than others at half the price. Style over content in other words, plus you'll look like a 'tard wearing them.
I'm not sure what is available with noise cancelling, but a decent set of closed cans should passively block out most external noise. I'll still heartily recommend my ATH-M50s, but I doubt you'd be disappointed with any of the suggestions in Chris's thread.

I'm planning on doing a lot of travelling very soon, so that is why noise cancellation is so important!
On another topic, would these benefit much from a separate phone amp?

Dr Dre beats £119 on amazon. Completely blew me away. Highly recomend! you can try them out at HMV but buy them off amazon as it's much much cheaper!
