Re: Over ear or extreme isolation headphones?
I think the vic firth ones isolate a bit too much if anything.
I have used the extreme isolation headphones at various recording sessions and I think they are a good balance but they don't isolate as well as the vic firth.
I bought some ultraphones... they are proper ear muffs for shooting and so they isolate VERY well and they have top of the line sony drivers installed.
If you don't mind spending the $$$ check them out.
I agree with Dre25
