There is one downside that I have found with all noise cancelling headsets and that it on occasion they will actually make it easier to hear other conversations as they block out the ambient noise and enhance voices.

I now just use a pair of iPod earbuds (not the ones that come with the iPod though they are Apple branded) and if you shove them in far enough they do a good job of blocking out the jet noise and the annoying passenger noise

flew AE3531 on Sunday and the two people behind me developed vocal chord diarhea/. From the time they took their seats till we landed in Ceveland nonstop chit-chat. I know way too much about these two!
|Quoting ClearedDirect (Reply 7):|
I have found the best way to shut them up or at least have them tone it down is to make comments on their conversation.
Just say something like "I cannot believe you did that!" Or something to that effect - works every time. I personally like putting on headphones when the person I'm sitting next to, insists on telling me their life story.
