Noise-cancelling headphones reduce unwanted ambient sounds using active noise control, which differs from passive headphones. When I travel for work, I use flights as a way to relax and catch up on my reading or sleep.
The last thing I want to do is to talk to anyone sitting beside me. Wearing noise-cancelling headphones signals to others that you are not interested in socializing while blocking out all the noise involved around you.
I was definitely the last hold out for noise-cancelling headphones. The best travel investment ever, these headphones let any traveler shut out the general noise of the aircraft so that you can relax, sleep in flight and not be disturbed. Even crying babies cannot be heard. Not just for cancelling out noise, they produce a deep, powerful sound for any music you want to enjoy. That’s right, these true modern-day wonders totally tune out any unwanted sounds, while simultaneously making your music sound even better than any old pair of in-ear earbuds. Lightweight and comfortable, they fit around your ears so you can wear them all day long. No wonder people are wearing them in airport lounges too.
At $159, they are a true investment in peace and quiet, especially when you travel
