Looking for good sound isolating headphones

100+ Head-Fier
Jun 29, 2010
So, at work, they just moved us to an "Open layout" plan, where an entire floor of over 100 people has very few separating walls. I've been using a DT770m, which worked OK before when I was working in an open room with only a dozen people in it, but now I'm dealing with 100+. I'm sensitive to sound to begin with, so I need something that can block out as much of the noise as possible, and is also comfortable enough to wear for 8+ hours a day. The noise is mostly conversations and sudden sharp noises (they also use glass tables).
Up to $500, but better sound isolating takes precedence over sound quality. I'd (obviously) like both, though.
Looking for full-sized headphones, only. No IEMs, as I just can't wear those for 8 hours plus.

You might want to consider active noise cancellation headphones for maximum isolation: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/innerfidelitys-wall-fame-noise-canceling
