    I just tried a couple of Bose options in my search for first-time premium headphones and earbuds. I mentioned Bose QC35 ii. I also decided to do some testing of the Bose QC35 against the Bose 700. Noise canceling is about hte same but the 700 provides a gradient so you can select your level of noise cancellation. I also tried the QC30 earbuds. They do a great job in restaurants muffling music. Haven't tried them on a plane yet.
    If you can still find them (amazon has them still I think), try Bowers & Wilkins P7W over-ear noise isolating - excellent sound for music and movies and it's rare I can hear anything other than what I want, and it sounds fantastic! (I take about 2 trips / month) Fair warning - don't listen to old music you used to like but haven't heard in awhile as you'll be buying a DAC, amp, and CD quality streaming.

    Update: Crutchfield has them for $250
