Ihonestlytough noisecancellingheadphones work a lot better for monitor audio because it gives you a clear sound. What I didn’t knew (or never consider) was that in order to cancel such noise the headphone is cancelling some parts of the actual audio that is being recorded, which could cause some problems later in post. I have the Sony MDR-NC60, which are excellent headphones andluckily noise cancelling is optional (1 AAA battery).
One question, when editing a video (or audio), are noise cancelling better? In my case I edit in a somewhat noisy place (cars, dogs, birds, water, among others) and most times I turn on noise cancelling.
