Noise Isolating (or Canceling) Headphones for Office Environment

Hi All,

I own a pair of QC-20s, but my wife is going to use these for her travel.

I want to purchase a new pair of headphones for a moderately loud cubicle-type office environment. Incidentally, I found the QC-20s to be outstanding on a plane, but not quite as good at eliminating noise from keyboards, telephones, and loud co-workers.

My budget is $1000 or less.

Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks!

I have the Sennheiser RS180 wireless headphones, and the fidelity is excellent for music.

No, they are not noise-cancelling, but they isolate you from the noise in the room very well.

They are also very lightweight and comfortable for long term use.

I found them on Amazon for around $250.

Under $100

Buy a pair of Sony 7506's or a pair of Sennheiser HD 280. Both are sealed and sound very good. This would leave you extra money to buy the $189 IFi Nano DSD usb dac for great headphone listening.
