Project Studio Isolation Headphones

Postby vynlOverdrive » Sat Dec 14, 2013 10:18 pm

I'm looking for a good pair of headphones; I just moved into a smaller apartment and don't have the luxury of an isolation booth, so I'm thinking about getting something that will sit pretty far off-ear and not leak sound in or out as much as possible while I do things like mic guitar cabinets, record vocals, and mix/master late at night.

A quick look around online led me to an EX-29:

or a Sony MDR-7520, or a Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO.

Any thoughts / suggestions / recomendations?

DT-770s are in another league to any other headphones I've used. I love them. Great isolation, built really well and sound very very good.
