Headphones that also allow natural hearing of external sound-i.e- zero isolation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey ,

 

As the thread title says I'm looking for some full size headphones that  allow as close as possible to natural hearing of external sound-i.e- zero isolation.

 

I wear headphones a lot, including when I'm out and about . At the moment I use sennheiser px100-II .When you place these headphones on your hears their is virtually no noticeable difference in sound isolation .Thus any music i listen to blends in with any other sounds in my environment .

 

I'm wanting this same openness though with a full size headphone . I can only ask for advice here because it's very difficult to gauge weather a headphone is fully open or not .Some that are sold as open still may have some isolation properties .

 

No guessing please, only direct experience with headphones you own .

 

Which are fully open?

Sony mdr f1, if you can find one. The most open and also nice sounding headphone ever. Its follow up: sony mdr ma 900 also open desing, but no so nice than the original concept.
