Noise Cancelling Headphones - Hear More on Any Budget

Someday, I hope portable music lovers figure it out... you don't have to settle for the crappy headphones that came with your player! In the world of headphones, you can do much, much better. At the very least, a ten to twenty dollar pair of headphones is a cheap way to get a heck of a lot more enjoyment out of your music.

Shure E500PTH noise-cancelling headphones, with a twist

I'm a big fan of Shure, Inc.  They make the best audio equipment, which started with products for the DJ and performer market.  Over the past few years they've brought the professional level equipment to the masses.  Well, not the masses who buy $9.95 Sony headphones at Target, but anyone willing to spend $99 or more.

This year they introduced the E500PTH headphones, and added what they call "push-to-hear" functionality.  By including a simple microphone, the E500's are able to intentionally amplify the outside world to the listener.  Why would you want to do this?  Two words: flight attendants.
