closed cans with good isolation suggestions please?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

am looking for a set of cans that fit the above.

new or 2nd hand, but must be really good naturally isolating.

my current number one set is my d7000, which are great for late night listening but due to their poor isolation not so good earlier on!

have ordered some ML angle pads to see if this helps.

my 2nd set of cans US pro900 are better isolators but i just dont like the way they sound. looking to sell these to help fund another option.

budget is upto £300 (providing i can get half that back for the pro's)

any recommendations?

- Sennheiser Momentum

- Sony MDR-1R

- UE9000 (pretty good isolation even without the noise cancelling)

- Focal Spirit One

 

I recommend these mostly because most other headphones up to the price just don't sound as good.

Also the Focal sounds pretty damn good, but others have questioned the build quality and quality control, so it might be one to avoid.
