My CD player is older than many users in this sub. I can relate.

What are you looking to spend? You want closed, to block out the family or open?

Personally I'm a big fan of beyerdynamic. Love their dt770. Well build, really comfortable and well priced at 130 euros. For a 120 more you get their DT700 which resolves a TON more detail but is slightly less warm sounding. With your listening habits I wouldn't go any further.

Another route is to jump on the bluetooth bandwagon. The current sony and bose offerings do allow the use of a cable as well as bluetooth. They cancel ambient noise but are tuned to a consumer sound, bass heavy with little details in the mids and highs.
