I use a pair of Audio Technica noise cancelling headphones with very good results – they reduce the PA noise considerably (20dB approx) so you can monitor without needing your phones really loud. Time align them to the PA first with the iLive PAFL delay so all the bass frequencies that still get through are coherent. I use them every gig and now hate using non noise cancelling headphones live. Mine are an older version but similar to these: ATH-ANC9 Quietpoint noise cancelling Headphones.
