Guide for buying a headphone

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

hey guys

i live in a dorm so there are ppl here who always talk and doesn't allow me to do my homework

so i decided to buy a headphone

it's very important that the headphone has Noise-Canceling ( Really Really Important ! )

and also the max budjet is about 120 $ or 130 $

any suggestion ?

thanks a lot

I think that an IEM would work great for that. They usually have better isolation than any NC Portable headphone IMO


EDIT : Woops, thought that I was on the Portable Headphone sub-forum, but whatever.

I also agree with the IEM suggestion.


I love Shure IEM's, and would certainly recommend the SE215 to you.

The HD280 Pro might actually be of interest to you, but whether you'd be able to deal with a closed-back with some higher pressure headband than you might be used to is up to you to find out. They're one of the better closed-back and isolating offerings under that price range. I like mine quite a bit, and they do loosen over time. They are passive noise cancelling, not active.

UE6000's for sure. They sound great and have active noise cancelling when you need it. They are under $100, have a detachable cable, fold up real nice, and even come with a decent carrying case. Comfortable over ear design, and I believe they have a remote for skipping song and changing the volume. For something with (active) noise cancellation, you won't find anything better in the $100 price bracket.
