I'd hate spending $300 on a pair of headphones, only to have to throw them away in....even 6 months!
I have Bose noise-canceling headphones and love them. I take several international flights a year so they really make a difference and were worth the expense for me. I also use them indoors to eliminate tv and music noise from others in my household. The Bose have a replaceable wire kit that costs $15. I bought 2 kits after my cat chewed the wires when I left them out of the case one time. I think other brands in this price range also offer replacement kits. If I didn't have the Bose already, then I would consider the B&W P5 headphones.
