Best Passive Noise Canceling [Or Noise Isolating] Headphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Title says it all.

In my own personal interest I want to know the best under $150. 

HOWEVER, I like to hear discourse regardless on this kind of thing. 

Go for it.

I dont think passive noise cancelling exists nor can exist.

 

But noise isolating, probably Sennheiser hd 25 is a good place to start

The best passive isolation that I've heard from various cans (in approximate order of increasing isolation):

Audio Technica M50

Phiaton MS 400

Shure 840

Senn HD 25-1

Senn HD 280

Beyer 770

 

Of those within your budget, the HD280 is probably your best choice.

Glad to see m50 and 840 in it. I am using the UE600 with the noise isolating tip. It could block out all the street noise (only very few cars) while have my music on the 30% volume. Not sure if the headphones will do a better job...
