You are better off with an IEM than a noise canceling headphone. Check out dfkt's IEM guide.
OK, I got over my bias against canal phones, thanks for making me look hard and for the link. I'm supposed to be getting Creative EP-630 earphones via eBay. With pricing in GBP (UK Pounds) and the vendor in actually in Shanghai, we'll see what arrives.

As for Bose, "gold standard" could easily refer to the amount of gelt needed to acquire these as they're still weighing in at around USD $200.

Edit

The Creative's came in, they seem authentic and sound good. The train commute was much quieter so I'm looking forward to seeing how these perform on airplanes and with lawn mowing.
