The subject line was intentionally vague. While continuously adjusting the volume control on a recent flight I came across the Bose advertisement for noise canceling headphones
I would have bought them instantly until I saw the $A600.00 price tag. An Internet search revealed "noise canceling headphones" priced from $30.00 up. Several brands I had heard of were from $90.00 to $150.00.
Do any of them live up to their advertisements? Can I expect the headphones on an airplane to reduce the noise to tolerable, not intrusive or imperceptible? How does price affect the performance? Does anyone have a recommendation or a URL to some objective reviews?
Any comments on the subject would be appreciated.
