The Sennheiser PX 100 doesn't isolate either, so if you using them the same way, there shouldn't be a problem.
My Senns sit atop my ears... They don't have cups to go over the ears, and that is the way I prefer my headphones to be, for heat and sweat reasons. I believe both models you refer to have full earcups, correct?
