I seem to be spending lots of time on the train at the moment, and I'd really like to use it to get some work done. My current headphones are Beyer DT250's, which I like but they aren't great at blocking out sound from the rest of the train. They do block out enough sound from the train itself, but not from other passengers. I'm considering buying a pair of isolation headphones for the purpose - like these from direct sound. So my Beyer's claim 16db of ambient noise insulation, the EX-25's claim 25-33db.
Does anyone use these or anything similar for this purpose, or can you recommend anything else? I've not really used them much, but do you think noise cancelling headphones are a better option?
On a side note - I wish manufacturers would publish all the info about products. Isolation ratings for headphones seem quite difficult to find, especially with even more useful isolation to frequency graphs. If anyone knows of a site where these are collated I'd love to hear about it.
