Default Isolation Headphones

I'm shopping around for Isolation headphones NOT in ear types. So far i've found the Vic Firth and the EX-25 Extreme Isolation headphones. Anyone have any experience with these or could recommend other headphones? Thanks.
Max Roach did it, Elvin Jones did it, but Roy Haynes didit and didit and didit.

I've been using the Vic Firth for years, for practice and in the studio, and I'm pretty happy with them. I haven't tried other isolation headphones, but since I'm a Vic Firth endorser I stick with this... They are pretty durable too.

GK Music Ultraphones.

There are at least a few threads on this topic, worth searching for more details.

I have the EX-29 Extreme Isolation. I use it for two years and I'm absolutely happy with them. I have also tried Vic Firth headphones, but they didn't suit for me.

P.S. I'm not a native English speaker so feel free to correct my mistakes, I would be glad to improve my English too.

I only know the MoreMe cans by reputation, but the word of mouth has been consistently positive. Plus, they're cheap.

Any small headphones you currently own and like + ear defenders over the top (6 in B&Q) = 6 isolation headphones. Works for me.

I use Sennheiser HD25-1 II DJ iso headphones, and they are perfect for blocking nasty frequencys but still hearing your drums at comfortable level, i wear them 4 hours straight per session and dont even notice. Only IEMS would beat these. I tryed ALOT of headphones before choosing them. I wouldn't recommend anything else EVER again. Unless you can afford 500 on IEM's but these are still 130
