    Noise-Cancelling Headphones

    I tend to mainly use headphones on planes and the engine noise can be distracting. My son got me these JVC HA-NC80 - Noise Cancelling Foldable Headphones with: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics for Xmas and I couldn't believe how effective they are. Flip the switch and the background noise virtually disappears. No doubt, the experts will say the frequency response is poor I should have spent 5 times as much on a Bose set but with my tinnitus, that would have been a waste. I'm more than happy.

    I've never been a fan of what noise cancelling headphones do to the sound profile. a well isolating set does me much better.

    You are no doubt correct when sound quality is important but on a plane, being able to hear the sound through a headset that is not heavy and cumbersome is the main factor and for me, these did the trick. If the slightest hiss or loss of some frequency response ruins your audio appreciation, then trying to listen to it on a plane is probably not a good idea.

    If I have any complaint they reduced but did not eliminate the PA messages trying to sell perfumes and scratchcards!
