Headphones that block out the most external noise

Cs342

I'm looking for portable, comfortable headphones I can wear on buses and planes that block out lots of background noise so I can listen to music without turning up the volume. I don't like IEMs because they get dirty easily and I don't like the feel of something sticking in my ears. Any suggestions?

PS. I don't mean active noise cancelling, just noise isolating

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

HD 280pro, not really portable but definitely block out the noise.

I have heard very good things about the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 and QC 3.

Or this may help

Though I don't know if I should speak of such sites that cater to the more casual consumer.

Kind of half expecting the response of "We do not speak of the "C" word around here" ;-)

Did you buy from the advice on any of the other threads,  you must have a few now.

isn't this like your third thread on new headphones? 

Sometimes I post questions for friends of mine that aren't bothered to create an account, those previous questions were for them and this is for me

Sennheiser PX 360. I have the bluetooth version.

Yeah, we don't tote Bluetooth or wireless around here, for reasons.

I can't recommend the bluetoothyness of them, but it's really handy for listening to podcasts or youtube videos. When you plug them in with a cable though, they become very potent headphones. so.... yeah. They are good, they isolate noise.

who cares...

Philips Uptown are quite a good option, although I've got to say the cable is absolutely dreadful (I have a pair).

But they are good looking, sound quite good and are decently build, better than most sub $100 dollar at least. 

And they isolate very well.

Why?

Compressed audio signals, shit integrated amps, and over priced for the quality received (as you have to pay for the transmitters.)

How about noise cancelling? Is that generally not recommended too?

Signal crowding, very basically the driver is cancelling noise and not making music. 

Passive isolation is more better.

Depends on how good it is really.. There is the DT770M which has extra isolation, made for drummers. and I use my CHC Silverado's for drumming, which works a little nicer than using my JBL J33 IEMs, and at high volume the J33's are also a little sibilant for me, so then the Silverado's are even nicer for that. 

Reviews: JBL J33i   M50s   SRH440   Soundmagic PL50
