Best headphones for use in loud areas (planes, streets, etc...) for under $120?

more_vert
I just got my first pair of really good headphones ( HD-558) and have just now realized that they are not good for any more than just listening at home. Im also going to be going to Florida soon from washington, so that's a very long flight, and I need a good pair of headphones that would block out all noise so I could use them on the plain, on the bus to school, and other similar places.

a pair of iems with comply foam tips does the trick for me. The noise cancellign isnt active but I've worn them on planes and even got myself almost run over a few times so I'd say they do the trick. As an added bonus they are super comfy to wear, if prone to getting a little gross after long use.

Etymotic HF5 is $99 right now. They will block everything out passively. iEMs are probably gonna be your best bet within budget. I wear Etymotic s when doing yard work with motorized tools and frequently have to check if something is running with a hand-check 'cause I can't hear it. Sound quality is excellent though lacks deep bass.

ehh. nothing will completely block out the noise at this price point, except hunter/shooter ear muffs. say $300 for Bose QC or Sony MDX1000. If you just want a closed set of cans - try Monoprice 8323 with HM5 earpads.

You know your headphones are good when the ear pads cost more than the headphones themselves XD. I think that I might go for the cb-1, zreviews made them sound pretty nice for around 75$ used.

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
