Best Traveling Headphones.-Update- Would like some NC headphones instead

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I wanted to know should I invest in getting a new pair of headphone for my travel vacation next month.
I'm Currently using my 1964T for portable use. Then at home I have my ultrasone pro 900, and Brainwavz HM5.
I was looking to get another pair for when im on the plane and outside.
Which would be my best type. Price range would be between 100-250$

Update.. Might bring my 1964T and a noise cancelling headphone help me choose which one.

Personally I would stick with the 1964T for travel.  If you want even more isolation you can use a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 15s and run your 1964T under them.  Yeah it sounds silly, but the isolation will be killer and well worth it on planes or trams.  The 1964T has a -26dB isolation so why are you not wanting to use it?

When im on a train i can still hear the train noise still.
Even at a mid level volume.
Maybe I need a better amp.? Currently Im using the iBasso D-zero

I have CIEM and i use them as earplugs when I go shooting. Airplane noise is not a problem at all, maybe you have seal issue?

Check out these Ultraphones... I had the privilege of sitting next to a professional musician on a plane, and he recommended these Ultraphones. They are basically the Sony MDR V7506 drivers placed in a 29db hearing protection ear muff.

Another solution would be to wear your 1964T under a pair of low-profile shooting muffs

maybe.. my CIEM extends out because my ear canal is too small for the 3 drivers frown.gif

Your CIEM's are probably going to be as good as it gets for isolating. If you want more, you can start adding extra layers on top. The suggestion for another closed over ear-headphone, or low profile shooting muffs is pretty good.

The customs you have should give a around -20dB of isolation.  If you are hearing the train / plane noise leaking in where it is really interfering with your music then there must be a seal issue.  Did you have the molds done on your ears or were your IEMs second hand?

It's not really interferring, it just that when incoming trains come on I can alot of it, but when going inside of it, their ok.
I bought them off here and had my ear molded, and sent both of them out to Fisher Hearing....

I am not sure any headphone is going to isolate more than what your IEM should already be doing.
