Default Looking for new headphones

I was looking on purchasing some new headphones. I was in Best Buy and they have quite a few different models and brands. I know "Sony" is good and "Bose" are some of the best. Does anyone know anything about the brand "Beats By Dr. Dre"? or "Skullcandy"? they had more than one pair of these on display. I went online to see what they have and they have some pricey "Sennheiser" ones for $1,500.00 and $1,000.00. I just want something to plug into the laptop when traveling in the Newell coach that are excellent quality sound, comfortable to wear and preferably wireless. No ear buds either, I have trouble keeping those in my ears.

The best and most comfortable that I have found is Sony Virtual Surround Sound, Digital Wireless, model DP-RF7100.

Cordless is a must these days, it's worth every extra penny. If its something that comes cordless then I have it! I wouldn't recommend anything that isn't. Here is a great roundup of the best wireless headphones. The Best Wireless Headphones | PCMag.com

I've had my eye on the Monster DNA, Vektr or Inspiration head phones. They are noise cancelling and they have on ear, over ear and in ear styles.

You can check them out at the website. They carry them at Best Buy, Staples, OfficeMax and a few other places.

I actually have a pair of Sennheiser's, they are amazing quality! Those Monster DNA's have a really sleek design, definitely going to look into them.

I also found a very helpful guide that is up to date this year on headphones: http://cpuverse.com/best-wireless-headphones/
