The pain of the double-edged sword. The amazing isolation is what allows us to hear all the nuances of the music. But I've been away from home to take care of ailing parents, and realized that while enjoying music late at night to finally have some 'me time,' I might not hear a scream for help from across the house! Made we wonder if I'd hear a smoke detector go off either!! I'm a bit paranoid/pessimistic by nature, so it's something I'm working to get over so I can still enjoy these.
Yes, the isolation is too good for its own boots at times, in one way it's excellent for hearing every minute detail and creating a pitch black background. On the other hand it's almost dangerous.
