I am looking for a nice pair of bluetooth over-ear headphones with noise cancelling. I have two in mind but I am open to suggestions. I listen to mainly rap but do also listen to R&B, Rock and Classic Rock. I really like lower notes/heavy bass. It's a necessity for me. I plan on using them for travel (planes) and also at work. I'm really trying to stay somewhere between 175-250 but 250 is kind of pushing it. I'd spend it if the difference between the two price points makes a very noticeable difference.

That being said here are the two I've been looking at. Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC (https://en-us.sennheiser.com/wireless-headphones-bluetooth-noise-cancelling-hd-4-50-btnc) and Audio-Technica ATH-WS990BT (https://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/222c4aba71976084/index.html). I believe these brands are supposed to be audiophile quality (obviously on the lower/mid end price point). I've never really bought anything to be considered this so please throw suggestions to me or let me know which of these two you think is better for my needs.

Both of the choices you've made are good in terms of quality and reputation. I have this pair (though not in wireless) and can first hand vouch for the sound reproduction as being top notch:

They're a little above your price range but don't let that deter you. I've also heard these Sony headphones and they're excellent:

Again, slightly above your price range. What matters most here is that if sound quality is paramount to you and you can wait just a little bit longer to save up, it's worth it. The bottom line is that you really need to get some of these on your head to listen to music you like. Let that be your decision maker.
