Headphones or Earphones to significantly reduce noise from the outside

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey,

 

I am in search of a pair of headphones which will cancel outer noise, or at least diminish it.
It should allow me to concentrate while reading, listening to music or just when I seek relaxation. I'm referring to traveling by a bus, or by a train, or just any other crowded locations.

 

A friend of mine has shown his concern of a few medical matters I should be aware of prior to using this type of headphones. Can you elaborate on this particular issue?

 

I am sorry I didn't mention my budget: $200.

 

Looking forward to your advice and help.

I feel like the medical condition is just hearing loss or damage due to the fact people play their music at dangerously high levels?

What type of music do you listen to? What kind of sound signature?

Also i personally find the in ear earphones do a better job at blockin out outside noises in general. Are you open to those?

I don't play music at a high volume, so a negative answer for that.

I mostly listen to Metal, Dubstep and Electronic Rock.

 

I don't mind buying earphones, I assumed that the term headphones matches all types of personal audio playing devices.

Headphones are more directes at those with earcups that go on or around your head with a headband of some sort. Earphones or in esr monitors are those esr plug like things u stuff i to your ears.

The yamaha eph 100sl are quite bassy and nice for the price, sony xba3 are also a contender.

I would add in vaonic gr07 bass edition as well but those will not isolate as well as thw other two. Stil as good if not better than headphones though. And theyre VERY good.

For headphone, i could suggest you vmoda m80, sennheiser amperior.

Ou could also look into onkyo es hf300. Ive never hear them myself but ive hear theyre VERY good.
