These are clearly not sound isolating. First of all, you need FULL seals around the entire ear to even begin to isolate, and since these don't have active noise cancelation, they won't do much more than winter earmuffs would re. sound reduction.
The AblePlanet Linx headphones that woot! sold a while back do both, and are better than Bose, IMHO. These are just over ear versions of earbuds.
