Do these headphones block sound WITHOUT music on?

Looking for a good pair of headphones that will block out sound WITHOUT music or movies playing so I can study in a quiet environment (I cannot study with music or listening to people talking around me). Student on a budget so need the best "bang for my buck".

    Yes they do. That is why they take a AAA battery so that you can switch them on and they emit a "white" noise that mostly blocks unwanted sounds out.
