Best ever noise isolating headphones? The Remote Audio HN-7506

Live life dangerously on the edge? Try out some illegal transmitters! Lectro UM250b

Fun fact:* Lectrosonics UM250b*are legal here in NZ, but illegal in Australia!*:-o*(because it is 250mW. Compare that to say the very popular Sennheiser G3, which is 30mW!)

So yeah, I can't...
