Looking for good noise canceling work headphone options, mic needed!

more_vert
I work at a call center and have cubicle buddies that are loud. They are hurting my productivity. :( I think I can work 20-25% better if I could just muffle them some. it would help me multi task.
I love Sennheiser headphones for home use. I am looking at a pair of Pink Floyd HD1s for work since they are on sale for $300. Is the microphone good at canceling noise? Would they work in a office enviroment? My call center is casual so I think I could wear these headphones. Might make work a bit more fun too!
So, if these wouldn't work.. hmm. What options would you all consider for good headsets? Wireless is not required. I could always try to get a normal headphone set and a mod mic. OH my workplace does prefer that I use a usb output from the computer so I would probably get a usb sound blaster card or something.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Bose QC headphones are one of the best noise cancelling headphones out there.

There's a lot of options these days and I have honestly never seen this many new brands coming to market too. Keep your eyes out for Bluetooth 5 with the new AptX codec which could actually be just as good as corded, I don't know. This list is pretty good if you are looking for wireless https://lonelybrand.com/blog/wireless-earbuds-extended-battery-life/ but other than that I think the names you listed are actually all good options.

The best in the market now is: Sony WH1000 XM3 noise cancelling, mic. blue tooth, good drivers, and very handy hand mute fetcher.

If you can foot the price, i love my B&O H9i headphones. I travel allot and find them a necessity for making calls in the airport or drowning out the monotony by turning on the noise canceling... the H8i may be a cheaper alternative but I have not tried them

You're basically describing the Sennheiser MB 660. I recently picked up a pair for $80 used on ebay. They're designed for loud call centers and have amazing sound quality for music.

I love the sound of my Parrot Zik's. Way better than Bose, but the pads wear easily, but remain comfortable. If you don't mind flaky leather, they sound way better than other noise canceling options imho.

Bose QC series. Microphone is built in, works well with phones.

If you're looking for a cheap option you can always just buy a lapel mic and bring your favorite closed cans to work. Or if you're really bent on buying a headset, you can't go wrong with Hyper X Clouds - ignore the "gaming" portion of the brand, they're actually a decent pair of cans for the price

I like my Sony 1000XM3. Base is nice, overall the depth of sound is excellent. The focus is different than my older Sennheiser HD598's. Overall I like them though my ears get hotter in these than the open eared Sennheisers. Sound quality is better, ever so slightly lower comfort, nice portables though. Can compare to mid range wired.
