Sony MDR7509HD for tracking?

I've been looking for a good pair of headphones for guitar and vocal tracking. Stumbled across a pair of used MDR7509HD's for $50. I've never heard these before and don't know much about them. Anyone know how good the isolation is on these. I will be tracking in a very small room right next to a 120w 5150 amp. I have also been looking at the hd280's as I hear they have very good isolation.

I have them. The isolation is not that great. Click tracks tend to leak. Recently bought four sets of Sure SRH240 as good, sturdy tracking headphones which have far better (very good) isolation and don't sound at all bad either.
