Hi there. You'll have to do your research, but your options are closed back headphones or IEMs. I bought the Meze and I like them a lot, though they may be too bassy to some people. Sennheiser got the Momentum 2 (something like that) which comes in a lot of different variations, some with ANC. A friend of mind has them and they are pretty awesome, but may be a bit above your budget. Looking at IEMs, I bought the shure se215 a few years ago and they were amazing for their price. Thing is, time has passed and the market is now flooded with IEMs of that style, and I guess you can find something better at the 200$ price range. I prefer over ear headphones, so I haven't checked any IEM lately, but there are plenty here on MD and I bet you can find something that can fit you or at least give you a direction. Hope you'll find something soon, and wish you luck. Have fun buddy

Thanks for the recommendations! I have an older pair of iem Bose that are not great, and I have a pair of truly wireless, Sennheiser Momentum in ear headphones that are pretty good, I think I found an option that should be pretty good Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250ohm reviews are fairly solid price is great $140 on Amazon right now. Not noise canceling but the more I read the more I discover most noise canceling headphones have subpar audio quality compared to close back over the ear. Most people who reviewed said they close out most noise and with even light music you can’t hear plane engine noise. I have heard great things about Sure for in ear.

Shure IEMs with the foam tips or the triple flange tips have incredible isolation. I’ll give a thumbs up for the DT770, but the velour pads don’t isolate as well as leather pads. Just know that it has a very different sound signature from the 6XX. It’s v-shaped, with deep, powerful bass, and really bright highs.

Thank you, this is great Info! Do you think they will disappoint me? I listen to many genres of music. Lots of classic rock, classical, electronic, soul, r and b etc. I will be pushing them with a decent amp/DAC the iFi xDsD? I read lots of goof things about them especially the 250 ohm versions!

If you are very sensitive to highs, and are unwilling to use any EQ, you may be disappointed in them, though they do have good resolution. I have the 58X and the 770, and like having a different sound signature, for different genres or different moods. If you really like the Sennheiser sound, maybe consider something like the 598 closed back headphones. They are less than $200, but I can’t personally vouch for their sound.

What kind of equalizer do you recommend for on the go from iPad or iPhone?

I’ll have to defer this question to others. I honestly just play Spotify with my iOS devices, and occasionally apply limited EQ changes within the app. I actually have to research this also.

I cannot express the love for my Sony WH-1000XM3 when we're talking flights. Especially long flights. IEMs are fine, close cans are also fine, but miles away from the best over ears ANC out there. From an audiophile POV: even high-end closed cans leak, so much jet rumble that I either have to crank up the volume to some deafening levels or preserve my hearing and spoil the joy of whatever my current playlist has in store for me. The ANC cans are a must for any type commuting with public transportation. Enjoy your HD6XXs at home and make any trip pleasant with the 1000XM3s. P.S. I now always ANC while driving for extended periods of time. Definitely one of the wisest investments I have ever made.

I think you are right, so far I am not loving the DT770PROs listening back and forth from the 6XX and those and it doesn’t come close enough for me, I think I am going to return them. How close do the 598 closed back headphones come to 6XX sound?

Sorry they’re not working out for you. I like the 770s a lot, but for very different reasons than the 58X. I hope someone will comment on the 598. I haven’t heard them personally.

No worries it’s not that they aren’t great headphones I’m sure they just don’t do it for my ears like the 6XX or even my iem momentum’s I think I am just very drawn to the Sennheiser sound

I ended up going with ANC's! I read so much great stuff about the Sony's but ended going with the new PXC 550 II.

Drop + THX Panda -- Bluetooth Audio Clipping Whenever Resumed from a Pause of More than 2 Seconds
I don't have much experience with Bluetooth headphones and figured I'd ask here to help set my expectations a bit. I just bought some Drop + THX Panda headphones. They're well reviewed for sound quality and supporting higher-end audio codecs, some of which Macs support (eg: aptX) and some of which they don't (eg: LDAC). Anywho, upon unboxing them and pairing them to my 2020 iMac running Big Sur, I noticed that audio over bluetooth sounds totally fine until it's been paused for more than 2 seconds. When I unpause, it almost feels as if maybe the headphones are coming out of some standby or low-power mode and are rushing to start a new bit stream. The sound is clipped / distorted for a second or two until it "catches up". This is particularly annoying for things like notifications and other sound effects which, by nature, are essentially really short audio clips. I can't find anything online explaining if this is normal behavior or just a shortcoming of bluetooth or these specific...
