I was looking for a set of headphones that fit over the ear with ANC as well. This set of headphones fit the bill with a great price as well. The fit my full ear inside the soft, padded cups. Even the top headband has cushioning for a comfortable fit. The music sounds great with nice bass. The ANC makes a difference to reduce background noise even if you are not listening to music at the time wanting silence to work with out distraction.
