Thanks for all the suggestions! I wrote him this morning and told him if he wants superior cancellation go with the Bose QC25's (wired so he won't have any issues with using Bluetooth on a flight). But if he wants to sacrifice some NC and get better SQ, then let me know and I'll dig a little deeper.

Budget isn't too big a deal. His exact words were "I'll pay up to $500 if it can scratch my back too." :lol:

That's usually 2-5k a day plus travel expenses... :wink:

In that price range you can get the Shure SE535-LTD In-Ears (they red ones).

They have superb noise-isolation, are easy to stow away in a jacket and don't need any charging or batteries. Easy choice in my book, they will blow any headphone in that price range clear out of the water.

He doesn't seem to be interested in IEM's. Personally, I can't tolerate them at all.
A most unfortunate, Freudian, double entendre is that hotel named "Budget Inn."
