Life Hey, Thanks!

Last Monday I put out an urgent Slog distress call seeking headphone advice. I had been reduced to borrowing these at work…
…and I wanted the wisdom of the Slog crowd to help me find a new pair. I had a fantasy:
My fantasy headphones are like giant earmuffs—the earpieces covered in all kinds of softness, the size large enough that the points of contact mostly involve my head and not my ears themselves. Also must be: Wearable with glasses and powerful enough to withstand an office of extroverts.
I received a lot of tips and advice, and I now recommend this comment thread to anyone seeking a new pair of headphones. The most-recommended headphones to suit my purposes: The Sony MDR-7506s, a couple different kinds of Sennheisers, and some Bose noise-canceling headphones that are so expensive I saw them offered somewhere with a payment plan.
