good phones for travel with isolation

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Tried the rec thread to no avail. Been trying to find some headphones for travel, decent/good isolation, and not super-bulky (no iem's they irritate my ears with extended use).  Looking to spend up to 2-300, but can stretch that to $500 if it's really compelling.  I know senn hd25-1 II's seem to be recommended a lot but havent had a chance to check them out. Anything else?  Momentums look pretty sexy and so does the sony mdr-r1, but again haven't had the chance to check them out in person.  I've been fine using grado 225's and denon ah-a100 but their isolation is pretty much non-existent.

Regardless of what you read here the best travel phones, noise reduction, are Bose. Read Tyles InnerFidelity "wall of Fame" review of noise cancelling phones.

was originally against noise canceling but the psb m4u2 look interesting.  damn knew coming on this site again would cost me some cash.

Bose are the best at this hands down. Hate to say it but have to agree.

what about the choice between sennheiser hd25-1-ii and the psb m4u2?  mainly want to use them for studying but also for travel on long flights.  the sennheisers seem pretty good in local shops but have no idea what it would be like blocking out the drone on a 12 hr flight, which is why im thinking hard about the psb's.  I'll be honest and am not that critical of a listener, so not too picky.  Bose makes me a little nervous b/c a couple of friends who had triports had them fall apart after a few years.
