Default Check my thinking here

I am looking for some new travel headphones. They don't need to be small, just have a fairly short cable length (or the option for one), and ideally a travel case of some kind. They will be used primarily on airplanes with a Sony MP3 player.

I currently use RE0s or Sennheiser 201s. I am moving away from IEMs because the RE0s never stay in, and conduct static electricity into my ear when I walk with them on. The sound quality is also worse than the 201s, which is telling since the 201s cost me $12 and the RE0s cost me $90.

After doing some research I have settled on the HD 449s for this purpose. I want circumaural but a closed design with as much noise isolation as possible, but without active noise-cancelling. The isolation on the HD 201s is more than sufficient, but I hate the long cord. Also looking to step up in sound quality.

Anything better than the HD 449s for this purpose? Price range is around $100.
