Indeed. A good rule of thumb for others out there looking for a new set of cans, if you are supposed to put a battery in your headphones, it’s “noise cancelling”. Noise cancelling headphones are in fact usually of a closed back design, so you could still get away with them, just don’t put any batteries in it or disable the noise cancelling. But then of course why waste the extra money on them in the first place. They are usually marketed toward the consumer sound market, and again not fro pro sound use. Basically, the kind you want (closed or open back) don’t need batteries.
