Does anyone have any noise cancelling headphones, and if so, how are they? I am guessing Bose is the best. For their good headphones, they charge $300. How are there Triport headphones for $150? Is there a bog difference? Thanks for your help.

If you can borrow a noise cancelling headseat from someone before you make a purchase to test it out first, definitely do it. I still have not but what I have been doing recently is wearing disposable earplugs along with my headseat and it seems like it reduces the noise level by as much as the headseat itself. It is MUCH quieter. And they are free.

Flew business class on an AA 777 DFW-FRA-DFW and DFW-NRT-DFW and they were AMAZING! AA uses Sony noise cancelling headphones in Business. In fact, I slept with them on. You just turn them on, and they work even if you aren't listening to anything. You can DEFINITELY tell the difference with the noise cancelling on.

I have the Bose Quiet comfort Two head set and let me say, its the best thing that has covered my ears for sound, I love it, I recommend it all the way. Very light, very comfortable and most of all, clear Loud rich rich sound.
I also fly with the Bose Aviation head set X, and its just as good. BOSE all the way.

I bought the Bose QC2s and they come on every flight with me, be it an hour or 11 hours.
I find them very comfortable to wear all the time onboard, even when not using IFE or listening to music. If you move your pillow about into the right place (and depending on how you sleep) you can also get some shuteye very easily with them. Only problem with them is, they either noise cancel or don't work at all. So be prepared to take a stash of AAA's with you on long flights. Also they are a bit flimsy and a friend of mine who flies 150,000 miles a year has his bound up with tape!
I paid UK prices (£285/$545) for them and I'd buy them again!
As for promos they won't reduce the price but they might chuck in a free portable CD player....

I use lightspeed technology. ANR headset model 15k. Runs about $300 but threir worth every penny. The battery pack takes 2 AA's and I've been using the same batteries for 2 yrs. now without having to change them. They also have higher end models, the 20k 25k 30k.
I tried out a pair of the dave clark ANR and found it to be lacking and over priced for what they are. Battery pack was the size of a car battery.
