I am no audiophile at all, but I want some good noise canceling headphones. Quality and comfort are my top concerns.

Please recommend some to me... I want to buy them today

The sennheiser 280pro aren't technically noise-cancelling, but I can garuntee you won't hear a thing with them on lol.

would you mind IEM or do you want headphone's as in over the hear/around the ear. cause for 100$ you won't get awesome ACTIVE noise canceling headphones, but you can get some passive noise canceling headphones.

I'm not telling you what to get but I'm sure this can help.
They have good deals on reburbished Sennheiser headphones.

In-Ear modules, they basically go into the ear canal, as earbuds rest on them. They nicer ones are comfortable, but the only issue is some higher end ones require you to "loop" th cable over the ear. but noise cancelling is pretty awesome, i use my super.fi's on plane rides to boston [next to the engine] and can't hear squat compared to regular earbuds.

if IEM or earbuds are an interest to you, check out some shures like the e2c or e3c's and so forth. or the ETy-6's

85$

120$
super-fi's are also awesome for the IEM's. IEM's provide better noise canceling for under 100$ IMO

I think I want the over-the-ear kinds... for travel and drowning out noise at work.

For pure budget, Sennheiser HD201's should do the trick.

Circumaural, closed headphones are not really outstanding until you reach the $150 plateau, but the 201's sound very good for the price.
