    My mom does a lot of traveling and I want to get her a set of noise canceling headphones for Christmas. Looking to spend $60 tops. I'm also looking for a model which is capable of folding to a compact size which makes it easy for traveling with.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    My mom has been wanting these ever since she saw a bose ad for them. She keeps asking, when are you goign to get me the bose headphones. I have to keep reminding her that bose is a pos company :o

    Those Bose headphones are seriously great though. Have you ever tried them? My brother has them because he travels all the time, and they're sweet.

    Fry's Electronics had at least 3 models around $50-60 when I was there, last. That doesn't mean they're great, but there are options at that price range.

    Sennheiser PX100 or PX200. Or, if you want something 'cannier', something low in the Sennheiser HD-series.
