Do you find that those old Apple Earpods that came with your iPhone just don’t filter out enough sound during noisy flights, train trips, and bus rides?
The following list of noise cancelling headphones are a great place to start, if you’re looking for ultimate noise-cancelling ability and the best sound.
The rechargeable Beats by Dr Dre and the Creative Labs Soundblaster noise cancelling headphones are by far your best bet.
In fact, Beats’ headphones compact down so nicely, they’re perhaps the best overall value for a traveler looking for quality studio headphones that don’t take up much space in a suitcase or backpack while not in use.
However, if you have the extra space and want the best in quality and price, the Sound Blasters offer better sound and noise cancelling, without the $300+ retail you’ll pay for the Beats (I’ve seen the Soundblasters for $149 in many places — online and off.)
While the video recommends the Bose Earbuds for people who don’t like over-ear models, they aren’t much better than a pair of EarPods from Apple, which by the way aren’t that bad for sound quality. The 20i’s also retail for $299! If you’re looking for awesome sound from earbuds — good luck! Go for Sennheiser or Klipsch.
