Although not true noise canceling phones I recommend the Etymotic ER4. They do a great job at isolating you from out side noises.

I second this recommendation. I have the ER-6i headphones that use the same tip and the isolation they provide is fantastic. I use them every time I fly and they really cut down on the engine and screaming kid noise. smile

He's a quiet driver. Except for that part where I was trying to sleep on the way back to Toronto and he got really talkative.

Here is a guy that tested and listened to a lot of headphones.

Not bad for a $90 headphone! smile I have always thought of the Audio Technica ATH-AD700 as one of the best value headphones in market when you also factor in their wide soundstage and comfort. My listening impressions are pretty identical to his thoughts.



Due to the fact that these Audio Technica's AD700's are open ear design, they will not make it as live cans but they sure do have a nice response. A little low end light and looses top a bit early but they actually do meet our +-4 db spec we set for the CD3000's.


I am also not surprised the Shure SRH 840 did well in his testings and is among his recommended list for live mixing headphones. I wish he tested the Shure 440 as well. While the 840 is the most expensive of Shures professional line (suited for DJ's), the model below, the 440 is designed for the most neutral/accurate response and is cheaper. Not as comfortable as the 840 though.

Has anyone listened to any of the Denon headphones? I never really considered them before as a serious headphone manufacturer. They seem to compete well against the usual suspects.

I'm using Bose-on-ear headphone for over a year now and quite happy with it. Its quite comfortable and folds neatly. The sound is quite good IMO.
