Good point of clarification gldnears. Closed-back headphones ARE preferable for monitoring situations, helping isolate your ears so you’re only hearing what the camera/recorder is hearing. Open-back headphones tend to be nicer in a controlled, studio environment such as when you’re doing post. Noise cancelling (as in with active electronic cancelling circuitry) are to be avoided.
