Bose QuietComfort 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones are FABULOUS!
I am usually a mid-tier frugal travel…. not too expensive, not too cheap. However, I splurged! … And this is one example where you really get what you pay for and it was worth every cent.
[column]I tried them out recently on a Las Vegas to London trip – 10 hour trip across the Atlantic. These headphones cancelled out the drone of airplane noise while still allowing me to listen to my music/movies. My only problem, if you want to call it that, was being surprised by the airline attendants as I never heard them coming. While the cost is steep ($299), this is an item that I will carefully stow in my handbag and use on all planes (Maybe even trains). The value of arriving refreshed from sound sleep and no airline buzz was worth it![/column]
