Noise Canceling, Detoning, and Reduction?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I found that what makes my listening expirience amazing is actually being able to HEAR my music. With the Audio Technica ATH-M50s I can't do that. There is so much background noise where I live and hangout that I cannot hear the fullness of the cans. The sound quality is amazing but I just can't hear all of it at once due to outside/ambient noise.
I need to find a quiet pair of headphones but that sound just as good as the athm50s for a cheap price (200$-) and that have low impedance..

Heya,

 

What kind of ambient noise are we talking here? The M50's have pretty decent passive isolation. Moving to active noise cancelation isn't going to net you much more privacy honestly but it's dependent on what kind of noise it is.

 

Very best,

It's really the common laundry noise, pipes, air vents. And if I'm on the go it's similar to a loud subway.

Thanks.

Heya,

 

IEM might be the way to go for you, if you're able to tolerate them. You'll get better isolation with them than a full size headphone. Better quality per dollar too. And you can wear a headphone on top of them to further increase passive isolation.

 

Very best,
