    The Sony 1000XM2, get very good reviews. https://www.theverge.com/2017/11/29/...ing-headphones

    Used to have noise cancelling headphones (Bose), but have since moved on to audiophile headphones. Works fine in the plane also.

    Oops under USD 200, try the Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC

    I have some BOSE but their ear muffs started to disintegrate after one year. I have not been able to find a replacement. I might just go with a cheap pair. I'll bet I could find something in the market at Tatchik in Burma if I looked.

    I see some are wireless, how would that work in a plane?

    Im guessing you have some sort of transponder thing you got to plug into the plane. If so im sure I would forget to take it out.

    Ooh you want to connect the headphones to the IFE ? I am sure I read somewhere there is an adapter, but not sure if it's 3rd party product or not.

    Then you better get the wired one.

    They have Blue Tooth. And a wire to connect to the plane system.

    Glad to hear that I'm not alone with my complaint. Bose didn't seem too concerned when I e-mailed them, wrote them and phoned them. Once bitten I don't go back under any conditions. $200 wasted.

    I have Bose quiet comfort 35. These are now only used when travelling on planes and I find them to be very good. Although wireless, on the plane I just wire up (it is in the pack). Not $200 but if they are for yourself, just fork out (That boat you once had would make $500 peanuts). If is for the kids well stick to under $200. If they have to work for something they will appreciate it more.

    One complaint about them though and no solution (even had a Bose worker spend a few hours trying to sort it out), is that the wireless is incompatible with some systems; changing drivers etc does not work. Now if at home and listening to music, I do as would the Thai's. Full volume (or close to it), windows open and share it with the neighbours. Pay back for the early morning PA announcements and predictable music!

    Noise cancelling on planes alone is worth the money. Buy duty free on your next trip out and save about $50 (if you have time to claim it back on your way out, receipt needed though they never asked to see but could)

    Another vote for Bose, I bought the headphones about 5 x years ago, I just had a look and they are Q25 ?............................................Excel lent and super comfortable headphones, I never thought I would say that they are worth the $380 I paid, there just brilliant. I use them every couple of weeks why im mowing my lawn, plug in the Ipod and turn the noise cancelling on and you can hardly hear the mower, and there good when im on a plane 555


    Btw never had to replace the cushions, looks like they are leather ?

    I have the Bose quiet comfort 35 and they really are superb. Very comfortable and total noise cancellation. Battery life for the wireless is excellent. I have the Beats Studio and the Bose is space age in comparison. Beats is a brandname only and doesn't compare with Bose Quality. Well worth the money. Think I spenk about 275 euro.

    Votes are in, lash out on the QC35 and then give those that have not got them an independent report.

    Can anyone recommend any in ear alternatives to the Apple air pods? Functionally I love them. But I think the sound quality isn't improved over the wired ones and for the money that isn't good enough.

    I've seen some generic non big brand Chinese ones for sale on amazon which I might try out.
