So I'm debating on if I should rearrange my budget to allow for buying these before the end of the month, so I can use the Head-Fi coupon code they have for 14.4% off. The one thing thats keeping me from being completely sold is isolation. Has anyone used them on a bus (sitting towards the engine compartment in the back), and if so, how well do they isolate? How well do they isolate both ways? I've read reviews on the m80, but they're never quite clear on the isolation power.
Earlier I was coming home from campus and I sat down in front of someone on the bus. I had Pendulum's Immersion album playing full swing on my sr80i. Not long after I sat down, that person moved to the back of the bus and I'm fairly certain it wasn't because I smelt funny.
