If you get a wicked noise canceling set of cans you can run Delta fans and not even hear the jet engine.

or just get in-ear canalphones which isolate better and sound significantly better for the price.

I can provide pics and stuff if you want.

EDIT: They don't have that great of a rating on newegg, but I don't even bother looking at reviews there anymore. A lot of the reviews (especially for the headset) is filled with bias and user error
I know what you mean. I have the Razer Caracharias and my best friend has the Megaladons. Both are amazingly comfortable and sound amazing. IMHO, the Megaladons are worth the cash if you have the desk space for the control hub.
