I certainly do!

Default Best Closed Back Headphones

if you dont need an external amp, the Sennheiser Momentum Over ears and the HD 598s are excellent for the range and are on a ridiculous sale right now

While less than the Utopia ($500), the Stellia is still an expensive headphone. I find Focal headphones to be comfortable for long-term listening.

I have several high end head amps and headphones: Audeze, Beyerdynamic T1, Focal Utopia on the way and others. I used Ultrasone Edition 8 for a couple years for travel. But ultimately I use Bose Quietcomfort 35. I traveled a couple weeks a month, China, Japan, Europe, Mexico... The Bose are not accurate, but are incredible pleasing, enjoyable to listen to. It is a completely different take on sound. I would sometimes just turn on the noise canceling with no input. I never would be in a plane in the air without them on. Planes are horribly noisy, these take care of that... end of the discomfort. Also, no wires... what a blessing. Daydreaming out a hotel window, they are great. I have audiophile headphones and system for home... but never am without the 35’s when traveling... also think iPad in room to watch movies.
