They will be driven by a Dragonfly Red.
I use them for sleeping in the same bed as my wife. I need good sound isolation. My Momentums are very quiet on the outside. I have used them for travel extensively.
I have tried and found many active noise canceling headphones blah.
Hope this info is helpful.

Thanks for your response. The headphones that I had in mind are likely to fit your needs very well. These are the Austrian Audio Hi-X55.
Austrian Audio? A new(ish) company formed by the engineers from AKG when the new owners Samsung closed the facility in Vienna.
As they are made for professional use and therefore for wearing for hours in a studio setting these cans have a reputation for being very comfortable. They also have a decent seal against the ingress or escape of sound ( not 100% but better than many).
They come with a 3.5 to 6.3mm adaptor jack so they will plug straight into your Dragonfly. They are also easy to drive. However they come with a 3m cable so for portable use you may wish to purchase the optional shorter cable (HXC-1M2). It is inexpensive. Not many home use audio dealers stock them and you may need to look to purchase them from a pro gear shop.
