Bose QuietComfort Noise Canceling Headphones
The Bose QuietComfort headphones are the gold standard for noise-cancelling. The QC-25 series are wired units made specifically for Apple or Android devices, while the QC-35 series are wireless. Both are over-the-ear and are super comfortable.
I have used the QC-25 Apple series on many flights and I am still amazed at the sound quality, comfort and noise-cancelling ability of these headphones. The plane cabin noise is nonexistent when I turn on the noise reduction. I can easily get lost in my movie, music, TV show or game. Unlike many other headphones, these can be worn at long intervals of time without any discomfort. The battery life is great and I have not had any issues with batteries failing mid-flight.
The only drawback of the headphones is that they are a bit pricey, but they are also the very best out there. The QC-25 series will run you around $300 while the QC-35 wireless units are $350.
Anybody that flies regularly or is in a noisy environment will surely enjoy these excellent headphones.
