While I do own noise canceling headphones there are not perfect. They do improve the experience but as you will discover, not one is soundproof.
I want to finally be able to play in quiet and peace, without hearing my PC sounds or my neighbors. I'm currently using the Philips SHP2700, and while the sound is good, it's far from soundproof. I've come across a few opinions about certain soundproof devices, but always something was wrong (bad sound, or in case of for example Sennheiser, low life expectancies). Can some one perhaps tell me what criteria have to be met in order for it to be soundproof? Maybe a certain type of material for the ear cups? That would make my search a lot easier.
Also if you have any personal experience about headphones or headsets that are a lot more soundproof than my Philips SHP2700, I'm more than happy to hear them.
Best Regards, Night
