Hi,

 

You should strongly consider Beyerdynamic DT660.

You probably need active noise isolation then.

HD 380's are not advertised as noise cancelling as far as I know.

 

Closed headphones do have some passive noise attenuation, but that's not the same thing as what is commonly marketed as "noise cancelling".

Could you recommend something at this price but noise cancelling?

I don't have much experience with noise cancelling headphones, sorry.

 

Despite their not so good sound, some reviews point to Bose for sheer noise cancelling ability. I don't want to vouch for stuff I haven't tried though. Hopefully somebody else will chime in.

The go to for the last while is Bose QC15 and recently QC20. I haven't tried either.

Dt660 is said to be very, very good with classical music. Not sure about how much it isolates.

DT660 is indeed very fine for orchestral music, hence its reputation for classical. I recommend it for chamber too. I enjoy it a good deal less for other classical subgenres such as solo piano. Isolation is slightly below average. Comfort is a little above average.

so are they better than these senheiser?  Should i take them back and get the DT660? is it worth it?

I don't recommend exchanging for the DT660, because you seem to want better isolation.

The closed, portable Martin Logan Mikros 90 might meet (or exceed) your requirements.

 

They reportedly block up to 92% of ambient noise.

 

From my personal experience, they isolate very well and leak very little.  They sound clear, focused, balanced, open, detailed and effortless while not losing their grip on musicality.  They handle Period, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic--ditto for the respective early and late variants--and even organ compositions well and can convincingly convey the Wagnerian ethos with all its brassy and percussive formidability.  Vocals are a delight.

 

Get them properly positioned and adequately amped and I think you are in for a real treat!

 

They can be purchased for about $80 right now.

 

An underrated and underappreciated overachiever on these threads, IMHO.
