    Default best isolation headphones

    Hey guys

    What are the headphones with best isolation in the dj world?

    I'm starting to dj again, and I really don't want to f*** my ears once I'm at a club. I don't really care about great sound, if I want quality I listen music at my studio monitors...

    Some technical specs would be great, but so far it seems this doesn't exist... al the data I can find are very subjective interpretations.

    TIA!

    sennheiser HD25's IMO are the best for sound isolation and djing.

    This badass has extreme isolation! Funny looking though...

    Well, if you want best isolation to protect your ears go for earplug headphones. A lot of djs now days use those. You can also go for simple earplugs. Use them under the headphones. They will let through just enough sound so you can work.
    I haven't tried this but heard that a lot of djs do this.

    If you don't want to mess with your hearing check out the Ultrazone line. I can really tell a difference in ear fatigue between Pro 650's and my Sony MDR7506's after a couple of hours.

    What I meant is that hi fidelity is not my main priority. Not looking for the high end perfect sounding headphones.

    Of course bad isolation with bad sound makes it even worst...

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I saw Ultrasone has also a dj line. Any input on those? What about isolation?

    Thanks, I've considered that too. The thing is I like to check how the club sounds and removing the IEM and putting them back again is a pita...

    Is it a fact the IEM have better isolation than traditional cans?
