I bought a pair of ATH-ANC9 a few years ago. They sound great, are reasonably comfortable and the noise reduction is really good (I use mostly on airplanes). The ATH-ANC7b listed here is one model below the 9, but they got good reviews when they came out in the late-“oughts”.
My gripes are the ridiculously short battery life, poorly constructed battery cover (which I had to replace), and twisty-skinny cord which always seems to be getting tangled up on something.
My next pair will definitely be bluetooth.
