Thinking of picking up a pair of HD25-1 II's. From what I have heard the isolation is very good in terms of keeping sound out and in. However, how would these fair on a plane? I am going to be doing some traveling soon and don't wish to bring my CIEM's or anything too bulky. My Shure's are indefinitely out of commission until I bother to resolder the cable... and I have always wanted to try the Hd25's. Can somebody provide some insight into isolation?
I never used them on a plane but I don't think they would work well. I can hear my computer with them on (using velour though, not sure how much better the horrible comfort pads are), barely but it's audible if I don't listen to any music.
My computer isn't mega loud and it certainly ain't a plane. I also hear trucks, cars, bikes, whatever well when walking around town, can even pick up stuff people are saying around me.
Better than the ones you get on the plane, but it will hardly drown the plane either,
