"but the superior noise reduction these bring to the table (vs. el-cheapo Sony cans)"

Now there's where you and I differ.

I use a pair of Sony* outdoorsman earphones because I want to listen to my music and be aware of my surroundings.

(Wouldn't want to miss such outside sounds as *HONK*, *Look out!*, and "MY God! He's gotta gun!!") ☺

For just enjoying the music and nothing else, nothing beats a decent set of speakers and a quiet room.

* *Spit*, Only Sony product I own. Dates back before they let the media wing consume all that was good in the company. (Yes, the headphones are *that* good and durable!)
