      For flying I would highly recommend getting noise cancelling. So much better. I got a set of jbl everest noise cancelling ones and have been very happy. Comfortable and sound fine and minimal background noise. Got them from jb hi fi on sale for just over 200 from memory.

        Haha, yeah bugger it, anyone who does not like the pink on me can be a brave little soldier and speak up if they are game

        The Sennheisers are looking OK so far. They seem hard to beat for the price and based on my pretty non-demanding requirements I think they will do the job.

          Good guys stock them too so can try their lowest price speil too and price match then reduce if not far. My jb is 200m from gg so i weigh them up against each other lol

              Hell yes, covered in pink flamingos and very stylish. It is my party shirt, hand made by Mrs Furbs.

                If not, even the 30x are a great set of headphones.

                the 50x and 30x fold right up too, awesome for travel.

                Also, they are very comfortable for people with large heads.....
                The big head comment sold me. I picked up a set of the 50x from JB Hifi today at 40% off and only paid $150.

                All the advice appreciated guys, thanks.

                  Thanks Bro.
                  $150 is insane value for how good those headphones are, well done mate. And hope you enjoy the comfort factor on your melon! Strange what internet friends know about each other haha

                    I have some Bose QC 35's been used only on flights, maybe 4-5 flights, one of those flights to LA. Just simply awesome headphones. Might sell em ? and upgrade to the Bose Bluetooth QC 35's.

                      I just got a pair of the Bose QC 35 II. My only complaint is that if I'm using them in the office, they cut out so much of the background crap that taking them off is like getting punched in the head.

                        Isn't that the whole idea of them to cancel out all the background noise so the music / movie is crystal clear. Actually, i dont think you have to have the noise cancelling activated on the new ones ? Are you saying the noise cancelling is too good on the Bose QC 35 II ? my son has the new ones like yours, i might give em another go for longer this time and determine whether i get the new ones or not ?

                          My problem with noise cancelling headphones.. is that music and sound dynamic is majorly lost. So it's a real trade off.
                          They are great for aeroplanes, that's about it for me.

                            Not the case with the QC 35'S so im told, maybe the lesser brands ? have you given the Bose a run ?

                              yeah I have and higher end than that, but it's more about the fundamentals of how they work. You won't please a purist with noise cancelling headphones, by nature the acoustics are completely different. I am a snobby ex audio engineer, so take that as you wish haha
                              *edit don't get me wrong, they are awesome, but for me they are only for when outside noise impeeds on your ability to listen normally
