A new thread because I gave up on the idea of active noise cancelation. No Bose for me.
I figure I have done about 10 hours of research so far.
I am seeking serious soud isolation, at all frequencies. I know there are many brands and models out there that do active noise cancelation. In fact I'd love to know which of those is best for isolation when turned off.
The skytrain in Vancouver is very loud, so are our buses. and it's not just low rumble below 200 hertz. I'm going nuts here. I now have a 1 hour commute, each way.
I am not an audiophile. My priorities are comfort, durability, price and lots of isolation. But of course, I do love music, of all kinds, from Bach to Slayer.
I'd rather not carry a portable amp, I'm not interested in IEMs.
So far the list is:
1. BeyerDynamic DT770 /80 (199$ Canadian at Long&McQuade) (everything is more expensive here in Canada)
2. Senheiser HD280 (119$ at Tom Lee Music)
3. Audio Technica ATH-M50 (190$ at Long$McQuade)
4. Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation (129$ at Tom Lee Music)
Which of those, or others, would you recommend?
Thanks tons guys.
