+1 for the 7506's. they arent perfect on bleed but most of my clients love the feel and sound. they work well for drummers, myself included.

I hate to rain on the Sony lovers...but...I own 'em and they bleed a lot by comparison to many others including my Beyers. The DT250's are so relaxing. Ahhhh!
The all around isolation super cans are by far the "Extreme Isolation" EX 29. They are not the headphones for any mixing decisions, but I have had singers comment that their prominent mids are very helpful. They do not lack and are pretty balanced. Mainly aimed at drummers.
Check 'em out.

Sony MDR-V700 "DJ" phones. I don't know why more places don't have these as standard. Great isolation with the soft pads. When they're new, there's a little more head fatigue, but the headband lightens up after being used a while. Nice bass all the way down without hype. Very musical.

the best method is use in ears monitors. You can buy shure in ears for like 150
that sound great.

Then wear these over them........

29 DB SSP Headset-Super Soundproofing, Co.

This is the only way to 100% eliminate bleed when the player/singer like it LOUD. I started doing this since my drummer has had his heads so loud the bleed was horrible. On quiet parts or beginning or endings of songs it was unexceptable. I've since used this method on singers and when micing acoustic players.
Works like a charm. Their happy and I'm happy

This method also works great when you're micing a gtr amp. You can really dial in a tone moving the mic around dead in front of tha cranked up amp. And it eliminates almost all the actual room. You only hear the monitoring. Also works great if you have to dial in a drum sound in a live room. Been doing this for 5 years or so without a hitch

vic firth

We use the Vic Firth Iso-phones for tracking. Never any bleed, cheap($50.00ish) so if they get broken it's no big deal, & musicians love them.
