hobsonlea: I'm looking to replace my tired AirNZ (gift) noise cancelling headphones.
I like the idea of APT-X Bluetooth - and have bought one of the following http://www.amazon.com/Avantree-Bluetooth-Music-Receiver-Stereo/dp/B00ABIVN16/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1369025127&sr=1-4&keywords=apt-x
which works well on the sound system at home - but for travel am interested in noise cancelling wireless
headphones. I have seen a shout out on forums here +1 for the sennheiser mm 550-x and recent positive public review of the Logitech UE9000 http://ue.logitech.com/en-nz/headphones/ue9000
Both both of these are pricey and wondering if anyone else has found a good alternative - wireless noise cancelling headphones.

Depends on whether you want ear or headphones.
I am still using my airnz gifted NC headphones. They are a bit bulky though and occasionally will use NC earphones instead.
I bought some audio-technica ATH ANC23 earphones for around $90 from wellington airport (so you can likely get them much cheaper elsewhere) and found them to be excellent.
I still think for best performance you need over-ear headphones, but have found nothing cheap that works well (except my free ones from air nz).
