@jaxson I have an older pair of Black Box NC Headphones which in their day were $499, which you could have for $100. They are pretty good, and pretty comfortable as well. I'd be surprised if anything you'd buy new for $150 would come close.

Saw these on special at the warehouse.

 

$69 for JBL Everest 100 Wireless Bluetooth Earphones, Black

 

Not sure how useful they'd be on a plane, given they're fully Bluetooth and have a 6 hour charge only, but might be of interest to others.

 

Supposedly noise cancelling.

Actually I just remembered that I have a pair of Sony MDR-ZX770BN headphones.

 

Are these any good on a plane for long haul?  I always found the noise cancelling to be pretty weak.

I've used them for long haul and found them to be good. They are great value for money IMO especially when they are occasionally available on a very good special.

Has anyone used AĆ«dle VK2 headphones? I think they look great, and given that I'm bald I'm a little more sensitive to the look. But is there any substance to go with their style?

Hi. 

 

Before I list these on TM, I have a pair of Pristine M10 Black Box ANC Headphones. They come with the case, cable, and a Airplane adapter. They look near new. The ANC is excellent as well. $100.

I must say these were my first Noise cancelling over the ear headphones.  Very good and comfortable and at $100 a very good price.

 

My 2 cents.

Did some testing and I just don't think any over ear noise cancelling headphones are going to work with my glasses.

 

I didn't think much of the Sony's but I tried them last night without glasses on and it was like a whole different ballgame. 

 

They're actually pretty good, but for me it just reaffirms that I need to find a decent set of noise cancelling in ears. 

I had the black box in ears last time I travelled a long way, but sold those and they don't offer them any more.

 

 

 

Suggestions for these appreciated.

My Sony MDR1000x work surprisingly brilliantly with my glasses on IMHO.

 

They do have an "auto calibration" feature which is worth running once you put them on - it attempts to configure the NC and sound to compensate for ambient noise type and position of the phones on your head. I haven't done any testing as to how much difference this really makes, but suffice it to say I have found they perform really well on long plane journeys for both music and movies, with or without specs.

Yeah I think it will be case by case for specific users, maybe even down to the style of glasses and how far they push the headphone sealing cushion off the face/ear.

 

 

 

Thinking in ear for me at this stage, but aware that they can be 'draining' / tiring over time.  (insert appropriate word for not so nice to wear for long periods of time here)

My Sony MDR-ZX770BN's listed here for $100.

 

Going to switch to in ear.  Just a personal choice based on how they feel with my current wide frame glasses.


SOLD

I find the Bose qc20s to be excellent. I can leave them in for a full 12 hour flight no problems, and even sleep with them in
