http://www.amazon.com/Etymotic-Research-Noise-Isolating-Earphones/dp/B003S3RFIQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1315450149&sr=1-1

 

32db to 42db isolation, costs a bit more than the others you've listed. No idea about the sound quality though, but Etymotic is a good brand

IEM's

 

There is no way a non-custom Fullsized will block out 24db of sound. Most custom earplugs hit 26db

Go see a Audiologist about Musician's earplugs at 24db. Runs like $60 with everything. No fullsized will isolate as well as IEM's or earplugs.

 

The MDR-V6 is probably the most isolating, but I can still hear anything around me.

In my experience the GMP 8.35 have the best isolation on the market, the HD280 also have a grate isolation, but maybe my head is to big and I had clapping force problems... was very painful!
