    Default Noise cancelling headphones for drumming?

    Are noise canceling head phones fit for drumming as in studio recording?
    I was debating between the BOSE Quiet Comfort noise canceling headphones and the Senheiser HD 280 (Not noise canceling).

    Which would work best?

    I don't see why you couldn't use them for both applications.
    But honestly, wouldn't pay alot for headphones. I have before and what I do now works alot better. Here's what I got, a fairly cheap pair of Skull Candy ear bud headphones they're really good alone, but.... To cancel the noise more get some ear muffs, like you would wear at a target range, you can get a cheap pair of these from wal-mart. Hope this helps

    For drummers, I use the Direct Sound EX29. In the 3 years I've had them the headband did snap, but was like $20 from the company. Great customer relations.

    As a headphone for listening to music though, they suck. They are tailored for cutting through external noise.

    Ive had trouble with my EX-29's... they slip off my head and when I dont move and get them to stay on my head they are too loose and thus dont isolate as well as they should... Disapointed...
