In a bit of a dilemma

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm going to be flying to Stanford on Monday, so speedy replies would be welcome.  I was planning on traveling with my Sennheiser HD-25's and a RoCoo for the source.  I'm now second guessing myself and am considering bringing my Hifiman HE-300's instead since they sound better.  Would the airplane drown out the music so much that it would be better to just bring the HD-25's?

You'll probably not even get enough isolation from the HD25. When flying I put my giant FA-003 over an IEM, and I can still hear the plane at times. The HE-300 definitely will not do it, but the HD25 may be passable.

The more isolation you could get, the better. There's no point of using a "high end" headphone, if all what you would hear, is the background noise. I suggest you use an IEM instead.

I don't really have any IEM's.  The only pair I have are a pair of not-so-great 'buds that came with my RoCoo and they don't have rubber tips.

The isolation of hd25 , is not as good as for IEM.

Also there's the pressure of air in the plane that you feel on ears, the IEM helps to mitigate this.

The isolation of the hd25 is pretty good, but the HE300? You won't be able to hear your music o.o
