Another SENNHEISER PXC 300 (with NoiseGardTM Advance) supporter here. Travel frequently on longhaul and wouldn't now be without them. Very comfortable and great with or without music. Sometimes use them without sound just flick the box of tricks on and enjoy the silence.

Using a Bose QC20 (in-ear, very comfy, flexible plugs) for a bit over a year.
Cancellation of cabin noise (and other) is very good, the internal battery lasts up to 14 hours (for the ultra hauls ).
It can be used with a phone (iphone, win or android) and has a button to "speak trough" so C/C doesnt need to scream 'chicken?'

Just too bad that sometimes C/C requires on to put them down/off even if not connected to a phone/player.

I have a pair of Bose quiet comfort 25's, they were a Christmas present from the family before a trip to Oz. I found them very efficient and made a big difference to the noise, I had the best sleep ever on the route. The only downer was when i found that they were a 100 cheaper in the Oz Bose shop than the UK..

Hello PAXfips and welcome to the 'cabin'. Thank you for using the search function to find this old discussion thread, rather than starting another. I hope you stay in the forums.

Recommend the QC20i (with an iPhone).
I have used the QC25 but found them very bulky. The QC20 pack fits in your pocket and the overall sound and noise reducing quality is just as good (if not better) than the QC25.
I also use them at home to block out any loud "neighbourhood" noise.
The "in-ear" headphones are very comfortable and I even sleep with them when SWMBO's snoring gets too loud.

S.o.S.: this thread is linked in the FAQ for SLF

Another note on the QC20: they come with three sizes of flexible plug inserts. If your ears dont fit to the usual one-fits-all the QC20 still might be worth a look.

What? You actually USED the FAQ?? The next time the 'trolley' comes down the aisle - help yourself to a Gold Star.

Bose. Not only a great piece of equipment, but a superb company too.

I had 2 pairs of the older Bose. Then they came out with the QC15, and offered a trade in of any prior Bose, in any condition at all, for $100. I accidentally ran over one of the old ones with my car, took in a bag of perhaps 100 bits, dumped them on the clerk and said "you said any condition at all".

No problem. New QC15!

I'm delighted with my in-ear Shure SE-215's. Great sound - not too bassy -- and reasonably priced (around $125 cdn). I've been using these for the past 18 months, pretty much every day, no complaints. In fact, more robust than i thought they'd be.

Another vote for BOSE from me, just bought the QC25 and used it during a seven hour flight. Noticeably less fatigued due to the almost silence I enjoyed. They fold down to a reasonable size and will definitely be with me on any flight longer than two hours from now on.

I've used QC3s with great success (with the two-pronged adapter thing) on many flights. Over-the-ear QC15s are probably better, but my experience of them is unfortunately limited to trying them on in the shop...
