Good amplified noise-canceling headphones

Ok, I admit that I bought "The Beats". Despite the stigma, I'm quite happy with them. But it's been four years, there are cracks, and I'm sure they're going to die soon. Looking for a new pair with these requirements:

- Equal to or better than "Beats" sound
- Amplification
- Noise cancelling
- Removable cord

Ironically, the newer "Beats" models have fixed cords, so I can't buy them again. I have habit of yanking on cords which would make any fixed-cord headphones die quickly.

Noise cancelling: consider a model that uses a "plug" to noise cancel.

These have always been more effective to me than any circuitry. Shure/Etymotic both make good in-ears but it seems most headphone manufacturers have some competition in the space.

Ooo... quick look on amazon and some in-ears have detachable cords. I didn't realize they made em like that.

Do you have Etymotic? How do you find them with base?

I have both..;)

E535s and Ety ER4Ps

They're different animals, depends what you're looking for. Shures have a bit more bass presence than the Etys, but they have been coming out with newer models I haven't tried
