any soundproofing headphones?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I was in researching of some soundproofing headphones

it might be weird, but I wish using those for extended period

I can't stand the noise, so I thought that maybe I should take any type of decent headphones.. but using them for extended period idk if its healthy or not

also I would like those to be less heating possible, I also don't tolerate the heat..

budget idk..

Generally we don't talk about them being "sound proof", just "closed" or "isolating", and optionally with "active noise cancellation".  I presume that's what you want, but I mention it because even the best will not block all sounds completely.

 

If I recall correctly the WH-1000XM3 from Sony is considered quite good in this regard, though I have not tried them myself to confirm.  A commonly recommended pair for a long time was the QC25 and later QC35 from Bose.  Those I have tried, and I find the noise cancelling quite good and the sound being quite poor with noise cancelling turned on, and so poor you won't want to bother using them with it turned off.

Ya sound prooing is something I haven't heard.  Like Guru Ryan_Vickers said.. very smart he is.  You know the Sennheiser 4.50 BTNC is hundred some odd dollars like not even close to 200.  They sound excellent.  I mean I have  Sennheiser 650 which I use in the studio, but if Im on the go the 4.50 BTNC will be nice for you.  Im here to say its excellent quality.  Just pair it with your phone and take it on the go.  Or get a bluetooth usb stick so you can use it in Windows as well.

yeah.. sorry I couldn't get the right words 😓

However since I never tried one of those type of products, generally the external souds, are still audible or not? (passively and actively)

External noise will still be audible for sure, more so with lowered music volume of course, but it is significantly reduced.  Passive isolation tends to kill the high frequencies, and active noise cancelling tends to knock out the lower frequencies, particularly consistent droning noises like a jet engine.

Varying noises will also permeate more, like talking.
