So I've just realised that I dont have any headphones for my plane journey over to the UK next saturday. Well  the bluetooth, bundled phone, and ps4 7.1 ones ones wont quite cut it.


As it will only be used for this plane trip, something cheap, light, comfortable etc would be good. I'm assuming over ear is the way to go.


Does anyone have any for sale, or point me in the right direction for new ones? Budget is always a tough one because I like good quality, but would be a waste if they sat there collecting dust all year. Maybe $200?




Im in Howick, Auckland

Just be done with it and buy Bose QuietComfort.


I didn't for so long and kept using rubbish $100 things (think they might have been cheap sennheisers). First flight with the Bose... instant gratification.

Thanks for the replies. The Bose do seem like the ones to have, but I'm pretty poor at the moment.

I remembered I had flybuys expiring so I went with the Sony 770. Cost additional $100 so all good.

Thanks for your help
