I just had enough of IEMs, there are just not for me. I would like a portable headphone! I used to use the Westone UM1 and seek to find one headphone of better or equal isolation, I dunno if its just me/my canal but even when I use the deeper Comply ones, they don't isolate much, especially the heavy, deep background noise of railways. For that type of sound, I find noise-canceling headphones to cancel that very well, since they are my primary noise. I understand that noise canceling headphone are receiving many big praises here, but even some of them good and worth it?
If not noise canceling, I'm looking at the usual Sennheiser HD280, Audio-Technica m-50, Sony MDR-V600. How do these compare to the isolation provided by IEMs or noise canceling?
Trying to keep the cost under $100 USD, cause I just bought an expensive AKG headphone for home use XD
Thanks a dozen.
