    I was wondering what everyone's expereince and opinions were on noise canceling headphones. My manager has the Bose ones. They are pretty decent for what they are suppose to do. I only hear a little feedback, but I think its because her laptop was causing it - not the headphones themselves. I stood next to an AC unit which is normally quite loud, and I could not hear it at all.

    I know Sony makes some, but I have never tried them. Has anyone tried Sony or any other brands? Are there some new models coming that I should wait for?

    I fly a lot, so I'm longing to get some. Thanks in advance.

    The sony model is just as good, if not better than the bose for a better price. In addition to vibrating to reproduce the music, they also vibrate to cancel out ambient noise, so the sound of whatever you are listening to will be colored by the noise cancelling electonics.

    Therefore I'd recommend these:

    Pricey but probably worth it. In a pinch for the money, go for these:

    I haven't listened to either one of these, but based on my experience with headphones and earplugs, I'd assume they would be great for what you want.

    I have the etymotic er-4p, which is the lower impedance version of the 4s linked above. Its a bit more friendly to running straight off your source without an amp.

    The sound is brilliant. One of the most accurate headphones available. And the noise isolation is great, much better than any active noise cancellation. They are well worth the money.

    If you are looking for noise-cancelling headphones with good range, you need these:

    Pioneer SE-DJ5000

    They are comfortable, stylish, and rugged. I'm a DJ, so this kinda stuff is important to me because I am always taking them on the road with me. I have had them a year and they are the best headphones I have used to date and most importantly they have stayed in one piece!.
